Control Pattern Mapping for UI Automation Clients

Note Note

This documentation is intended for .NET Framework developers who want to use the managed UI Automation classes defined in the System.Windows.Automation namespace. For the latest information about UI Automation, see Windows Automation API: UI Automation.

This topic lists control types and their associated control patterns.

The following table organizes the control patterns into the following categories:

  • Supported. The control must support this control pattern.

  • Conditional support. The control may support this control pattern depending on the state of the control.

  • Not supported. The control does not support this control pattern; custom controls may support this control pattern.

Note Note

Some controls have conditional support for several control patterns depending on the functionality of the control. For example, the menu item control has conditional support for the InvokePattern, ExpandCollapsePattern, TogglePattern, or SelectionItemPattern control pattern, depending on its function in the menu control.

This topic contains the following sections.
