UIElement.OnCreateAutomationPeer Method

Returns class-specific AutomationPeer implementations for the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) infrastructure.

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

protected virtual AutomationPeer OnCreateAutomationPeer()

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Automation.Peers.AutomationPeer
The type-specific AutomationPeer implementation.

Notes to Inheritors

The implementation of this method is typically to call the constructor of a specific AutomationPeer implementation, and return it as the return value.

All UIElement derived classes should implement this method in order to provide their own specific AutomationPeer implementations to the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) infrastructure. For details on implementing this pattern, see AutomationPeer.
