AutomationPeer.GetOrientationCore method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

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

Syntax


protected virtual AutomationOrientation GetOrientationCore()

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: AutomationOrientation

The orientation of the control.

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, GetOrientationCore is invoked any time that GetOrientation is called.

The base AutomationPeer implementation returns None. Peers that represent items may modify this to report information from their container. ScrollBarAutomationPeer and SliderAutomationPeer both have a pattern they can access that knows about orientation, so these peers can return a determined value. Test the existing return value in the peer that you are using or overriding and then override that behavior if necessary.
