Represents a control pattern object. The client API wrapper uses this interface to implement all property and method calls in terms of the GetProperty and CallMethod methods.


The IUIAutomationPatternInstance interface has these methods.

Method Description
IUIAutomationPatternInstance::CallMethod Client wrapper implements methods by calling this CallMethod function, specifying the parameters as an array of pointers.
