Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

abstract Parent : AccessibleObject with get
override Parent : AccessibleObject with get

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.AccessibleObject

An AccessibleObject that represents the parent of an accessible object, or null if there is no parent object.

Notes to Inheritors:

All objects should support this property.

The following example demonstrates the creation of an accessibility-aware chart control, using the AccessibleObject and Control.ControlAccessibleObject classes to expose accessible information. The control plots two curves along with a legend. The ChartControlAccessibleObject class, which derives from ControlAccessibleObject, is used in the CreateAccessibilityInstance method to provide custom accessible information for the chart control. Since the chart legend is not an actual Control -based control, but instead is drawn by the chart control, it does not have any built-in accessible information. Because of this, the ChartControlAccessibleObject class overrides the GetChild method to return the CurveLegendAccessibleObject that represents accessible information for each part of the legend. When an accessible-aware application uses this control, the control can provide the necessary accessible information.

This code excerpt demonstrates overriding the Parent property. See the AccessibleObject class overview for the complete code example.
