Top  Previous  Next



The UIAutomation Spy is used to inspect applications that contain Microsoft UIAutomation objects (e.g. Windows Presentation Framework, Silverlight or Java's Standard Widget Toolkit running on Windows).








The UIAutomation Spy has the following features:

·The Tree pane lets you view the hierarchy of UIAutomation objects available in the application

·The Properties pane lets you view the exposed properties of the highlighted UIAutomation object




In addition to viewing the object hierarchy and object properties, you can perform the following tasks:

·Parent - This selects the parent object of the one displayed

·Highlight - This will attempt to Flash (highlight with a red rectangle) the object selected in the Spy.

·Refresh - this simply refreshes the Spy view to reflect any changes that might have occurred in the application.


·Save to File - this will save the properties of the currently selected object to a text file.
