AutomationElement.ClickablePointProperty Field

Identifies the clickable point property.

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

public static readonly AutomationProperty ClickablePointProperty
public static final AutomationProperty ClickablePointProperty
public static final var ClickablePointProperty : AutomationProperty
Not applicable.

This identifier is used by UI Automation client applications. UI Automation providers should use the equivalent identifier in AutomationElementIdentifiers.

An AutomationElement is not clickable if it is completely obscured by another window.

Return values of the property are of type Point. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The value returned is in physical screen coordinates.

The following example retrieves the current value of the property.

System.Windows.Point clickablePoint = new System.Windows.Point(-1,-1);
object prop = autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ClickablePointProperty);
// Do not attempt to cast prop if it is null.
if (prop is System.Windows.Point)
    clickablePoint = (System.Windows.Point)prop;

The following example retrieves the current value of the property, but specifies that if the element itself does not provide a value for the property, NotSupported is to be returned instead of a default value.

System.Windows.Point clickablePoint1;
object clickablePointNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ClickablePointProperty, true);
if (clickablePointNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
    // TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
    clickablePoint1 = (System.Windows.Point)clickablePointNoDefault;
