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

public double LargeChange { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double

The large-change value or null if the element does not support LargeChange. The default value is 0.0.

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);
