MultipleViewPattern.Pattern Field


Identifies the MultipleViewPattern control pattern.

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

public static readonly AutomationPattern Pattern

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

The pattern identifier is passed to methods such as GetCurrentPattern to retrieve the control pattern of interest from the specified AutomationElement.

In the following example, a MultipleViewPattern control pattern is obtained from an AutomationElement.

/// <summary>
/// Obtains a MultipleViewPattern control pattern from an 
/// automation element.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest.
/// </param>
/// <returns>
/// A MultipleViewPattern object.
/// </returns>
private MultipleViewPattern GetMultipleViewPattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
    MultipleViewPattern multipleViewPattern = null;

        multipleViewPattern =
            as MultipleViewPattern;
    // Object doesn't support the MultipleViewPattern control pattern
    catch (InvalidOperationException)
        return null;

    return multipleViewPattern;
