Identifies the TablePattern control pattern.

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

public static readonly AutomationPattern Pattern

This identifier is used by UI Automation client applications. UI Automation providers should use the equivalent field in TablePatternIdentifiers.

The pattern identifier is passed to methods such as GetCurrentPattern to retrieve the control pattern of interest from the specified AutomationElement.

In the following example, a TablePattern control pattern is obtained from a AutomationElement.

/// <summary>
/// Obtains a TablePattern control pattern from an 
/// automation element.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest.
/// </param>
/// <returns>
/// A TablePattern object.
/// </returns>
private TablePattern GetTablePattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
    TablePattern tablePattern = null;

        tablePattern =
            as TablePattern;
    // Object doesn't support the 
    // GridPattern control pattern
    catch (InvalidOperationException)
        return null;

    return tablePattern;
