Provides methods and properties used to navigate the UI Automation tree.
Assembly: UIAutomationClient (in UIAutomationClient.dll)
UI Automation clients view the UI Automation elements on the desktop as a set of AutomationElement objects arranged in a tree structure.
Using the class, a client application can navigate the UI Automation tree by selecting a view of the tree and stepping from one AutomationElement to another in a specified direction using the GetFirstChild, GetLastChild, GetPreviousSibling, GetNextSibling, and GetParent methods.
If your client application might try to find elements in its own user interface, you must make all UI Automation calls on a separate thread.
