Client Object (MSAA UI Element Reference)

The client area is the part of a window where the application displays output, such as text or graphics. For example, a desktop publishing application displays the current page of a document in the client area.

Server application developers are responsible for creating accessible objects that provide information about the contents of the application's client area.

If a client application requests information about a custom UI element within an application, and the custom UI element that does not support the IAccessible interface, Microsoft Active Accessibility creates a default accessible object with minimal information.
