N unit-Can't access toolstrip button using button name in windows forms RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m trying to access a toolstrip button in windows forms using  button name in windows forms but facing null reference exception as end result. Normally I can access button using its name, but i am facing issue in accessing the  button in toolstrip. This issue occur in N unit framework and access button using automation element. Can  anyone guide me for this issue ?

    Code snippet for accessing button:

        enter code here
            public static AutomationElement WindowElement;
            public  void ClickButton()
                object objPattern;
                AutomationElement click = WindowElement.FindFirst(TreeScope.Descendants,
                 new PropertyCondition(AutomationElement.NameProperty, "toolStripButton2"));
                click.TryGetCurrentPattern(InvokePattern.Pattern, out objPattern);

    Code snippet for toolstrip:

        enter code here
        // toolStrip1
                this.toolStrip1.Items.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
                this.toolStrip1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
                this.toolStrip1.Name = "toolStrip1";
                this.toolStrip1.Text = "toolStrip1";
                // toolStripButton1
                this.toolStripButton1.Name = "toolStripButton1";
                this.toolStripButton1.Text = "toolStripButton1";
                // toolStripComboBox1
                this.toolStripComboBox1.Name = "toolStripComboBox1";
                this.toolStripComboBox1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(121, 25);
                // toolStripButton2
                this.toolStripButton2.Name = "toolStripButton2";
                this.toolStripButton2.Text = "toolStripButton2";
