ValuePattern.Pattern Field

Identifies the ValuePatterncontrol pattern.

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

public static readonly AutomationPattern Pattern
public static final AutomationPattern Pattern
public static final var Pattern : AutomationPattern
Not applicable.

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

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 ValuePatterncontrol pattern is obtained from an AutomationElement.

///--------------------------------------------------------------------
/// <summary>
/// Obtains a ValuePattern control pattern from an 
/// automation element.
/// </summary>
/// <param name="targetControl">
/// The automation element of interest.
/// </param>
/// <returns>
/// A ValuePattern object.
/// </returns>
///--------------------------------------------------------------------
private ValuePattern GetValuePattern(
    AutomationElement targetControl)
{
    ValuePattern valuePattern = null;

    try
    {
        valuePattern =
            targetControl.GetCurrentPattern(
            ValuePattern.Pattern)
            as ValuePattern;
    }
    // Object doesn't support the ValuePattern control pattern
    catch (InvalidOperationException)
    {
        return null;
    }

    return valuePattern;
}
