Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Automation.PeersAutomationPeer
The type-specific AutomationPeer implementation.
Remarks

Notes to Inheritors

The implementation of this method is typically to call the constructor of a specific AutomationPeer implementation, and return it as the return value.

All UIElement derived classes should implement this method in order to provide their own specific AutomationPeer implementations to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) infrastructure. For details on implementing this pattern, see AutomationPeer.
