TransformPattern.Pattern Field

Identifies the TransformPattern 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 TransformPatternIdentifiers.

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

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

///-------------------------------------------------------------------- 
/// <summary> 
/// Obtains a TransformPattern control pattern from  
/// an automation element. 
/// </summary> 
/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest. 
/// </param> 
/// <returns> 
/// A TransformPattern object. 
/// </returns> 
///-------------------------------------------------------------------- 
private TransformPattern GetTransformPattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
{
    TransformPattern transformPattern = null;

    try
    {
        transformPattern =
            targetControl.GetCurrentPattern(TransformPattern.Pattern)
            as TransformPattern;
    }
    catch (InvalidOperationException)
    {
        // object doesn't support the TransformPattern control pattern 
        return null;
    }

    return transformPattern;
}
