AutomationPeer.GetName Method

Gets the value that the automation peer reports as the UI Automation Name for the associated control.

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

public string GetName()

Return Value

Type: System.String
The value to report as the UI Automation Name.

Peers that affect the GetName value by overriding GetNameCore are generally implementing a behavior that can construct a usable UI Automation Name on basis of other property values of the associated control. For example, GetNameCore() implements a behavior that can process the button content by calling ToString on the content, and then returns the string so long as it is not empty or null. This enables a button composition such as <Button>OK</Button> to report its default UI Automation Name as "OK", without requiring any other usercode such as specifying AutomationProperties.Name.
