AutomationPeer.IsContentElementCore method

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

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

Syntax


protected:
virtual bool IsContentElementCore()

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

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

true if the element is a content element; otherwise, false.

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, IsContentElementCore is invoked any time that IsContentElement is called.

The standard implementation at the AutomationPeer level returns false. However, FrameworkElementAutomationPeer adds behavior that changes the default to true. Other specific peers also may affect this behavior; for example ItemAutomationPeer defers to its container. Test the existing return value in the peer that you are using or overriding and then override that behavior if necessary.
