AutomationPeer.ListenerExists Method

Gets a value that indicates whether UI Automation is listening for the specified event. 

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

public static bool ListenerExists(
	AutomationEvents eventId
)

Parameters

eventId
Type: System.Windows.Automation.Peers.AutomationEvents
One of the enumeration values.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
A boolean that indicates whether UI Automation is listening for the event.

Typically, you call this method before creating the AutomationPeer that raises the event. This method is a performance measure because if UI Automation does not listen for the event, it does not make sense to create a peer to raise one.

NoteNote

This method is static and only answers if a delegate listens for the specified event in UI Automation, not for an event on a specific element. UI Automation can create broadcast listeners; therefore the per-element information is irrelevant.
