Hi,

 

I've been doing some work on a app that tracks the windows title and contents of the search bar using the IUIAutomation framework.

 

In general its working great but when switching between tabs on Edge the property changed event does not fire as I'd expect it to.


I've used Accessibility Insights and I can see the Window property changes but the event never gets fired.

 

This is a bit of a old issue as I initially ran up against it back in June and even opened up an SO question which hasn't had much interest here but it has a bit more info.

 

Looking for advice as we subsequently aren't supporting Edge as browser but I'd like to resolve that if possible as I like the direct its heading.

 

Any thoughts would be much appreciated
