The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Identifies the IsOffscreen property, which indicates whether the user interface (UI) item is visible on the screen. 

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

public static readonly AutomationProperty IsOffscreenProperty

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 return value is of type Boolean, and the default value is false.

For more information about when this property is true, see IsOffscreen.

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

bool isControlOffscreen = (bool)

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.

bool isControlOffscreen1;
object isOffscreenNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.IsOffscreenProperty, true);
if (isOffscreenNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
    // TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
    isControlOffscreen1 = (bool)isOffscreenNoDefault;
