AutomationEvent Class

Identifies a UI Automation event.

Namespace: System.Windows.Automation
Assembly: UIAutomationTypes (in uiautomationtypes.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

public class AutomationEvent : AutomationIdentifier
public class AutomationEvent extends AutomationIdentifier
public class AutomationEvent extends AutomationIdentifier
Not applicable.

Identifiers of these types are found as fields in various classes to identify events; for example, InvokedEvent. They are also found in the event arguments passed to UI Automation clients.

It is not possible to create custom events.

In the following example event handler, the AutomationEvent in the event arguments is compared with the AutomationEvent that identifies the Invoked event.

/// <summary>
/// AutomationEventHandler delegate.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="src">Object that raised the event.</param>
/// <param name="e">Event arguments.</param>
private void OnUIAutomationEvent(object src, AutomationEventArgs e)
{
    // Make sure the element still exists. Elements such as tooltips
    // can disappear before the event is processed.
    AutomationElement sourceElement;
    try
    {
        sourceElement = src as AutomationElement;
    }
    catch (ElementNotAvailableException ex)
    {
        return;
    }
    if (e.EventId == InvokePattern.InvokedEvent)
    {
        // TODO Add handling code.
    }
    else
    {
        // TODO Handle any other events that have been subscribed to.
    }
}
