IAccessibleEx interface (uiautomationcore.h)

Exposes methods that are called by Microsoft UI Automation to retrieve extra information about a control that supports Microsoft Active Accessibility.


The IAccessibleEx interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IAccessibleEx also has these types of members:


The IAccessibleEx interface has these methods.


Retrieves the IAccessibleEx interface of an element returned as a property value.

Retrieves the IAccessible interface and child ID for this item.

Retrieves an IAccessibleEx interface representing the specified child of this element.

Retrieves the runtime identifier of this element.


This interface can be implemented on custom controls that also implement the IAccessible interface, to provide added support for UI Automation without the cost of a full UI Automation provider implementation.
