Identifies the Orientation property.

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

public static readonly AutomationProperty OrientationProperty

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 value of the property is of type OrientationType. The default value is None.

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

OrientationType orientationType = (OrientationType)

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.

OrientationType orientationType1;
object orientationTypeNoDefault =
    autoElement.GetCurrentPropertyValue(AutomationElement.OrientationProperty, true);
if (orientationTypeNoDefault == AutomationElement.NotSupported)
    // TODO Handle the case where you do not wish to proceed using the default value.
    orientationType1 = (OrientationType)orientationTypeNoDefault;
