Control.AccessibleName Property

Gets or sets the name of the control used by accessibility client applications.

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

public function get AccessibleName () : String 
public function set AccessibleName (value : String)

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the control used by accessibility client applications. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The AccessibleName property is a label that briefly describes and identifies the object within its container, such as the text in a Button, the name of a MenuItem, or a label displayed next to a TextBox control.

For more information about properties of accessible objects, see the "Content of Descriptive Properties" topic in the MSDN library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

The following code example creates an instance of a CheckBox derived class, MyCheckBox, assigns it an Image to its Image property and sets the AccessibleName and AccessibleDescription properties since the Text property is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic). This example requires that you have a Form named MyForm.
