Panel Tab Items should use AutomationId

Docking/MDI for WPF Forum

Environment: Windows 10 (64-bit)


im currently writting some UI tests for my application and i found that the tabItem of the panels do not have any AutomationId defined even though there is some defined for my panel.

I am able to find the active panel without any problem using those ID, but i cannot find the TabItems using them because there is no name defined.

Would it be possible to definition some if the panel have such ID defined maybe by using a naming convention like "tabItem_<PanelAutomatedID>?

Based on your screenshots, I don't believe you are on a recent version.  Which one are you running?  We've done a lot of tweaking of the UIA peers over recent versions and have massaged the hierarchy a bit.  Please try the latest 2018.1 version if you aren't on it.
