RangeValuePattern.RangeValuePatternInformation.IsReadOnly Property

 

Gets a value that specifies whether the value of a UI Automation element is read-only.

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

public bool IsReadOnly { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the value is read-only; false if it can be modified. The default is true.

A control should have its IsEnabledProperty set to true and its IsReadOnlyProperty set to false prior to the creation of a RangeValuePattern object.

In the following example, an AutomationElement that supports the RangeValuePatterncontrol pattern has its value incremented or decremented by the control-specific LargeChange value.

SetRangeValue(targetControl[0], rangeValuePattern.Current.LargeChange, -1);

private void SetRangeValue(
    AutomationElement targetControl,

    double rangeDirection)
{
    if (targetControl == null || rangeValue == 0 || rangeDirection == 0)
    {
        throw new ArgumentException("Argument cannot be null or zero.");
    }

        GetRangeValuePattern(targetControl);
