Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public string AccessibleDefaultActionDescription { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The default action description of the control, for use by accessibility client applications.

An object's AccessibleDefaultActionDescription property describes the object's primary method of manipulation from the user's viewpoint. This property should be a verb or a short verb phrase.


Not all objects have default actions, and some objects might have a default action that is related to its AccessibleObject.Value property, such as in the following examples:

  • A selected check box has a default action of "Uncheck" and a value of "Checked."

  • A cleared check box has a default action of "Check" and a value of "Unchecked."

  • A button labeled Print has a default action of "Press," with no value.

  • A label or a text box control that shows Printer has no default action, but would have a value of "Printer."

For more information about properties of accessible objects, see "Content of Descriptive Properties" in the "Active Accessibility" section of the MSDN Library, at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.

For samples, see the AccessibleObject class.
