AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty Field

Identifies the IsControlElement property.

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

public static readonly AutomationProperty IsControlElementProperty
public static final AutomationProperty IsControlElementProperty
public static final var IsControlElementProperty : 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.

Controls are elements that a user perceives as interactive or containing information in the UI.

Return values of the property are of type Boolean. The default value for the property is true.

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

bool isControl = (bool)
   autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty);

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.

bool isControl1;
object isControlNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsControlElementProperty, true);
if (isControlNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
{
    // TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
}
else
{
    isControl1 = (bool)isControlNoDefault;
}
