Gets the registered programmatic name.(Inherited from AutomationIdentifier.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodCompareTo(Object)

Compares this AutomationIdentifier with another AutomationIdentifier.(Inherited from AutomationIdentifier.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Returns a value indicating whether the supplied AutomationIdentifier is equivalent to this AutomationIdentifier.(Inherited from AutomationIdentifier.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this UI Automation identifier.(Inherited from AutomationIdentifier.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticLookupById(Int32)

Instances of this type identify specific control patterns. For example, the DockPattern.Pattern field identifies the DockPattern control pattern.

The following example displays the ProgrammaticName of patterns supported by an AutomationElement.

The following example shows how to request a specific pattern.

/// <summary>
/// Retrieves the selection container for a selection item.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="listItem">
/// An element that supports SelectionItemPattern.
/// </param>
AutomationElement GetListItemParent(AutomationElement listItem)
{
    if (listItem == null) throw new ArgumentException();
    SelectionItemPattern pattern = listItem.GetCurrentPattern(SelectionItemPattern.Pattern) as SelectionItemPattern;
    if (pattern == null)
    {
        return null;
    }
    else
    {
        SelectionItemPattern.SelectionItemPatternInformation properties = pattern.Current;
        return properties.SelectionContainer;
    }
}
