Microsoft UI Automation is the new accessibility framework for Microsoft Windows. It addresses the needs of assistive technology products and automated test frameworks by providing programmatic access to information about the user interface (UI). In addition, UI Automation enables control and application developers to make their products accessible.

This documentation describes the UI Automation API for managed code. For information on programming for UI Automation in C++, see UI Automation for Win32 Applications.
