AutomationElement.ClassNameProperty Field

Identifies the ClassName property.

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

public static readonly AutomationProperty ClassNameProperty
public static final AutomationProperty ClassNameProperty
public static final var ClassNameProperty : AutomationProperty
Not applicable.

This identifier is used by UI Automation client applications. UI Automation providers should use the equivalent identifier in AutomationElementIdentifiers.

This property can also be retrieved from the Current or Cached properties.

The class name depends on the implementation of the UI Automation provider and therefore cannot be counted upon to be in a standard format. However, if you know the class name you can use it to verify that your application is working with the expected UI Automation element.

Return values of the property are of type String. The default value is an empty string.

The following example retrieves the current value of the property. The default value is returned if the element does not provide one.

string className =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ClassNameProperty) as string;

The following example retrieves the current value of the property, but specifies that if the element itself does not provide a value for the property, NotSupported is to be returned instead of a default value.

string classNameString;
object classNameNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ClassNameProperty, true);
if (classNameNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
{
    // TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
}
else
{
    classNameString = classNameNoDefault as string;
}
