Accessibility in Xamarin Tabbed View (SfTabView)

8 Aug 20221 minute to read

The SfTabView 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 SfTabView control. To keep unique AutomationId, these inner elements’ AutomationIds are updated based on the control’s AutomationId.

For example, if you set SfTabView’s AutomationId as “Phone menu”, then the Automation framework will interact with the More button as “Phone menu More Button”. The following screenshot illustrates the AutomationIds of inner elements. The Automation framework will also interact with the Center Button and the element’s inside the tab item content with the element’s AutomationId.
