InvokePattern Class

Represents controls that initiate or perform a single, unambiguous action and do not maintain state when activated.

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

public class InvokePattern : BasePattern

Controls support InvokePattern if the same behavior is not exposed through another control pattern. For example, if the Invoke method on a control performs the same action as the Expand or Collapse method, the control will not support InvokePattern.

UI Automation elements that represent controls such as check boxes and radio buttons, which maintain a state, instead support TogglePattern or SelectionItemPattern.
