WindowPattern Sample

This sample demonstrates how to use the WindowPattern control pattern to control the screen location of a top-level window as well as register and listen for standard window events.

This sample defines two applications; an instance of Notepad used as a UI Automation provider, or target application, and a UI Automation client that operates against this target application.

This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and, consequently, does not follow application development best practices. For comprehensive coverage of Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft .NET Framework application development best practices, refer to the following as appropriate:
