AutomationElement.AutomationElementInformation.ControlType Property

Gets the ControlType of the element.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation
Assembly:  UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)

public ControlType ControlType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Automation.ControlType
The interaction model for this element. The default value is Custom.

Control type describes a known interaction model for arbitrary UI Automation elements without relying on a localized control type or combination of complex logic rules.

The only case where this property can change at run time is for a control that supports MultipleViewPattern. An example is the Win32 ListView control, which can change from DataGrid to List, depending on the current view.

For more information, see ControlTypeProperty.
