Hi Cynthia,

is this a known limitation for IE11? Since inspect goes straight MSAA, is flowsto/flowsfromsupported in UIA?

@Steve: many thanks for quick reply!

Best Regards
Stefan

actually there is also flowsfrom property
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ee684017%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

unclear whether either is supported. When interrogating flowto in
http://s.codepen.io/stevef/debug/PPXZWY using inspect.exe / IE11

FlowsTo:    [Not supported]
FlowsFrom:    [Not supported]
is returned

From the reference given one could have the impression only Firefox with IA2 supports flowto/flowfrom relationships.

you are correct, IE supports flowto via UIA flowsto property

doesn't look like the reverse relationsnhip (flowsfrom) is supported though.
