Accessibility control issue on textbox

jaejun lee 0 Reputation points

I set the audio guide string for screen reader(accessibility) to text box and text block component, But Narrator only reads "no item in view". Which properties should I set for textbox or textblock?

                                <TextBlock IsHitTestVisible="False" FontSize="13" Name="AddTitle" AutomationProperties.Name="{x:Static p:Resources.AddTitle}" Text="{x:Static p:Resources.AddTitle}" Padding="0" Margin="8"  Height="32" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Center" Foreground="#313c6c" Opacity="0.5" Width="150"  Visibility="{Binding Text.IsEmpty,ElementName=Title, Converter={StaticResource BooleanToVisibilityConverter}}" FontFamily="{Binding Source={x:Static glob:CultureInfo.CurrentCulture}, Converter={StaticResource TextBlockFontFamilyConverter}, ConverterCulture={x:Static glob:CultureInfo.CurrentCulture}, ConverterParameter='3'}"/>
                                <TextBox x:Name="Title" Height="32" Width="390" Margin="0,0,0,16" AutomationProperties.LabeledBy="{Binding ElementName=AddTitle}" AutomationProperties.Name="{x:Static p:Resources.AddTitle}" VerticalAlignment="Center" VerticalContentAlignment="Center" HorizontalAlignment="Left"  Style="{StaticResource WaterMarkTextBox}"/>

    Hi @jaejun lee ,Welcome to Q&A.

    From what I've tested, you can't use IsHitTestVisible="False" which makes it unreadable.

      <TextBox x:Name="textBox1" AutomationProperties.Name="jack" />

    Here is an example for AutomationProperties.Name.

    This is the official documentation for AutomationProperties.

    Best Regards,
