DockPattern.Pattern Field

Identifies the DockPattern control pattern.

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

public static readonly AutomationPattern Pattern

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

The pattern identifier (ID) is passed to methods such as GetCurrentPattern to retrieve the control pattern of interest from the specified AutomationElement.

In the following example, a DockPattern control pattern is obtained from an AutomationElement.

/// <summary> 
/// Obtains a DockPattern control pattern from an  
/// automation element. 
/// </summary> 
/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest. 
/// </param> 
/// <returns> 
/// A DockPattern object. 
/// </returns> 
private DockPattern GetDockPattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
    DockPattern dockPattern = null;

        dockPattern =
            as DockPattern;
    // Object doesn't support the DockPattern control pattern 
    catch (InvalidOperationException)
        return null;

    return dockPattern;
