Return Value

A collection of UI Automation providers.

A default empty array is returned by UIAutoCore.dll when the provider doesn't supply a value.

/// <summary>
/// Returns the UI Automation provider for the selected list items.
/// </summary>
/// <returns>The selected items.</returns>
/// <remarks>
/// Because this is a single-selection list box, only one item is 
/// returned.
/// </remarks>
IRawElementProviderSimple[] ISelectionProvider.GetSelection()
{
    int index = OwnerListControl.SelectedIndex;
    return new IRawElementProviderSimple[] { GetProviderForIndex(index) };
