This type is not an interface in this implementation. In fact, it is a DependencyObject, and includes basic dependency property support. The main reason for the specific implementation of IRawElementProviderSimple in the Windows Runtime is to provide the input parameter and return value type for FindItemByProperty.

Because it's a class, IRawElementProviderSimple can't be used for the COM scenario where providers add properties or control patterns on a UI element that already has a provider.



Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.
