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

public bool CanMinimize { get; }

Type: System.Boolean
true if the AutomationElement can be minimized; otherwise false.

In the following example, a WindowPattern control pattern is obtained from an AutomationElement and is subsequently used to specify the visual state of the AutomationElement.
