public static final var LocalizedControlTypeProperty : AutomationProperty
Not applicable.

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.

A provider is required to expose this property when it represents a custom control that does not have a well-defined control type.

Return values of the property are of type String. The default value for the property 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 localizedType =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.LocalizedControlTypeProperty) 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, NotSupported is to be returned instead of a default value.

string localizedType1;
object localizedTypeNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.LocalizedControlTypeProperty, true);
if (localizedTypeNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
    localizedType1 = "Unknown type.";
    localizedType1 = localizedTypeNoDefault as string;
