Contains values that specify the type of reference to use when returning UI Automation elements. These values are used in the CacheRequest.AutomationElementMode property.
Assembly: UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)
|Specifies that returned elements have a full reference to the underlying UI.|
|Specifies that returned elements have no reference to the underlying UI and contain only cached information. This mode might be used, for example, to retrieve the names of items in a list box without obtaining references to the items themselves.|
is the default, and specifies that returned elements contain a full reference to the underlying user interface (UI). specifies that the returned elements have no reference to the underlying UI, and contain only cached information.

The following example shows how to set the mode on a CacheRequest.
