QueryAccessibilityHelpEventArgs.HelpString Property

Gets or sets the string defining what Help to get for the AccessibleObject.

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

public string HelpString { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The Help to retrieve for the accessible object.

The following code 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. Because the chart legend is not an actual Control-based control, but instead is drawn by the chart control, it does not 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 example demonstrates using the QueryAccessibilityHelpEventArgs class with the QueryAccessibilityHelp event. See the AccessibleObject class overview for the complete code example.


// Overridden to return the custom AccessibleObject 
// for the entire chart.
protected override AccessibleObject CreateAccessibilityInstance() 
{            
    return new ChartControlAccessibleObject(this);
}
