Gets the ControlType of the element.
Assembly: UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)
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.
