AutomationElement.ControlTypeProperty Field

Identifies the ControlType property.

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

'Declaration
Public Shared ReadOnly ControlTypeProperty As AutomationProperty
'Usage
Dim value As AutomationProperty 

value = AutomationElement.ControlTypeProperty

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

This property can also be retrieved from the Current or Cached properties.

The default value for the property is Custom

The following example retrieves the current value of the property. The default value is returned if the element does not provide one.

Dim controlTypeId As ControlType = _
  DirectCast(autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ControlTypeProperty), ControlType)

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.

Dim controlTypeId1 As ControlType
Dim controlTypeNoDefault As Object = _
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ControlTypeProperty, True)
If controlTypeNoDefault Is AutomationElement.NotSupported Then 
    ' TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value. 
Else
    controlTypeId1 = DirectCast(controlTypeNoDefault, ControlType)
End If
