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 a control-defined String. The default value is an empty string.

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

string itemType =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ItemTypeProperty) as string;

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, an application-defined string is to be returned instead of a default value.

string itemType1;
object itemTypeNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.ItemTypeProperty, true);
if (itemTypeNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
    itemType1 = "Unknown type";
    itemType1 = itemStatusNoDefault as string;
