ISelectionProvider.IsSelectionRequired Property

Gets a value that specifies whether the UI Automation provider requires at least one child element to be selected.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Provider
Assembly:  UIAutomationProvider (in UIAutomationProvider.dll)

bool IsSelectionRequired { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if selection is required; otherwise false.

This property can be dynamic. For example, the initial state of a control might not have any items selected by default, meaning that IsSelectionRequired is false. However, after an item is selected, the control must always have at least one item selected.

The following example shows an implementation of this method for a list that requires an item to be selected at all times.

/// <summary> 
/// Specifies whether the list must have an item selected at all times. 
/// </summary> 
bool ISelectionProvider.IsSelectionRequired
        return true;
