IUIAutomationSynchronizedInputPattern::StartListening method

Causes the Microsoft UI Automation provider to start listening for mouse or keyboard input.

Syntax


HRESULT StartListening(
  [in] SynchronizedInputType inputType
);

Parameters

inputType [in]

Type: SynchronizedInputType

A combination of values specifying the type of input to listen for.

Return value

Type: HRESULT

If this method succeeds, it returns S_OK. Otherwise, it returns an HRESULT error code.

Remarks

When matching input is found, the provider checks whether the target element matches the current element. If they match, the provider raises the UIA_InputReachedTargetEventId event; otherwise it raises the UIA_InputReachedOtherElementEventId or UIA_InputDiscardedEventId event.

After receiving input of the specified type, the provider stops checking for input and continues as normal.

If the provider is already listening for input, this method returns E_INVALIDOPERATION.
