Accessibility in Xamarin Expander (SfExpander)

29 Sep 20231 minute to read

The SfExpander control has built-in AutomationId for inner elements. The AutomationId API allows the automation framework to find and interact with the inner elements of the Expander control. To keep unique AutomationId, these inner element’s AutomationIds are updated based on the Expander control AutomationId.

For example, if we set Expander’s AutomationId as “Automation”, then Automation framework will interact with expander icon of Expander Header as Automation Expander.

Expander Icon ControlAutomationId Expander AutomationItem1 Expander

where AutomationItem1 represents Control AutomationId and Expander represents the expander dropdown icon.

The following image denotes the AutomationIds of inner elements.
