Thank you for contacting us.
I find it hard to understand what product you are using from the provided information. Can you please check and let us know whether the technology is WinForms or WPF?
The WinForms technology provides Search Properties which expose the type of the control at the very least. You can also see other supported features by the WinForms suite here: Coded UI Test Extension for 3rd party controls - the basics explained - Microsoft Application Lifecycle Management - Site Home - MSDN Blogs
You can also consider sending a sample project which would help us further investigate this matter.
Looking forward hearing from you again.
