Initializes a new instance of the ClientSideProviderDescription class.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation
Assembly:  UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)

public ClientSideProviderDescription(

Type: System.Windows.Automation.ClientSideProviderFactoryCallback
The method that creates the client-side provider for a window.

The name of the executable or DLL for the process where the window resides.
Type: System.Windows.Automation.ClientSideProviderMatchIndicator
Flags that specify behavior when matching window class names.

When UI Automation encounters a window of class className within the process specified by imageName, it calls clientSideProviderFactoryCallback to create an instance of the client-side provider.

If className is null, the provider is used for all windows for which no other provider is found.

If imageName is null, the provider is used for all processes containing the window class.
