MultipleViewPattern.CurrentViewProperty Field

Identifies the CurrentView property.

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

public static readonly AutomationProperty CurrentViewProperty

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

In the following example, an integer is obtained that represents the current view for a control that supports MultipleViewPattern.

///--------------------------------------------------------------------
/// <summary>
/// Finds all automation elements that satisfy 
/// the specified condition(s).
/// </summary>
/// <param name="targetApp">
/// The automation element from which to start searching.
/// </param>
/// <returns>
/// A collection of automation elements satisfying 
/// the specified condition(s).
/// </returns>
///--------------------------------------------------------------------
private AutomationElementCollection FindAutomationElement(
    AutomationElement targetApp)
{
    if (targetApp == null)
    {
        throw new ArgumentException("Root element cannot be null.");
    }

    PropertyCondition conditionSupportsMultipleView =
        new PropertyCondition(
        AutomationElement.IsMultipleViewPatternAvailableProperty, true);

    return targetApp.FindAll(
        TreeScope.Descendants, conditionSupportsMultipleView);
}
