Property Value

Type: System.Double

The minimum value supported by the UI Automation element or null if the element does not support Minimum. The default value is 0.0.

In the following example, an AutomationElement that supports the RangeValuePatterncontrol pattern has its value set to the control-specific minimum value.

SetRangeValue(targetControl[0], rangeValuePattern.Current.Minimum);

/// <summary>
/// Sets the range value of the control of interest.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest.
/// </param>
/// <param name="rangeValue">
/// The value (either relative or absolute) to set the control to.
/// </param>
///--------------------------------------------------------------------
private void SetRangeValue(
    AutomationElement targetControl,
    double rangeValue)
{
    if (targetControl == null)
    {
        throw new ArgumentException("Argument cannot be null.");
    }

    RangeValuePattern rangeValuePattern =
        GetRangeValuePattern(targetControl);

    if (rangeValuePattern.Current.IsReadOnly)
    {
        throw new InvalidOperationException("Control is read-only.");
    }

    try
    {
        rangeValuePattern.SetValue(rangeValue);
    }
    catch (ArgumentOutOfRangeException)
    {
        // TO DO: Error handling.
    }
    catch (ArgumentException)
    {
        // TO DO: Error handling.
    }
}
