AutomationPeer.GetAutomationIdCore method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Provides the peer's behavior when a Microsoft UI Automation client calls GetAutomationId or an equivalent UI Automation client API.

Syntax


protected virtual string GetAutomationIdCore()

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: System.String [.NET] | Platform::String [C++]

The automation identifier.

Remarks

The "Core" methods are the standard implementations that perform the default action of an associated UI Automation client-callable method. You can override any of the "Core" methods to return alternative values in a custom automation peer. In this case, GetAutomationIdCore is invoked any time that GetAutomationId is called.

Providing a class-based behavior for AutomationId is uncommon. Typically, app authors set values for elements in the app by setting the AutomationProperties.AutomationId attached property in the XAML UI definition.
