The client area is the part of a window where the application displays output, such as text or graphics. For example, a desktop publishing application displays the current page of a document in the client area.
Server application developers are responsible for creating accessible objects that provide information about the contents of the application's client area.
If a client requests information about a custom user interface element within an application that does not support the IAccessible interface, Active Accessibility creates a default accessible object the client object with minimal information.
