this is my very basic code (i'm trying automate some tests on an application and am using messagebox to display my progress thru the app) I get passed "here 3" but I get stuck further with an error below code

1.Is there a way to highlight all the controls within eventTab2 (or any object that I nominate?like some sort of recursive get?) and also return the type of object it is with all it properties?
2. Could you explain the solution above so I can manipulate it (remember newbie)

THANKS!!!
            var mainWindow1 = new WpfWindow();
            mainWindow1.SearchProperties[WpfWindow.PropertyNames.Name] = "IntraBet [1.4.0.103]  EQ3WNSTDB11";
            mainWindow1.SearchProperties.Add(new PropertyExpression(UITestControl.PropertyNames.ClassName, "HwndWrapper",
                PropertyExpressionOperator.Contains));
            mainWindow1.WindowTitles.Add("IntraBet [1.4.0.103]  EQ3WNSTDB11");
            mainWindow1.DrawHighlight();
            
            var eventStack1 = new WpfCustom();
            var eventStack0 = new WpfCustom();
            var eventTab0 = new WpfTitleBar(mainWindow1);
            var eventTab1 = new WpfMenu(mainWindow1);
            var eventTab2 = new WpfTabList(mainWindow1);
            var eventTab3 = new WpfTreeItem(eventTab2);
            var eventTab4 = new WpfText(mainWindow1);
            MessageBox.Show("got here0");
            
            eventTab1.SearchProperties[WpfMenu.PropertyNames.AutomationId] = "menubar";
            eventTab1.DrawHighlight();
            MessageBox.Show("got here2");
            eventTab3.SearchProperties[WpfControl.PropertyNames.ClassName] = "MenuItem";
            eventTab3.DrawHighlight();
            MessageBox.Show("got here4");
            eventTab2.SearchProperties[WpfTabList.PropertyNames.AutomationId] = "windows";
            eventTab2.DrawHighlight();
            MessageBox.Show("got here3"); 
            eventTab0.SearchProperties[WpfCheckBox.PropertyNames.AutomationId] = "chkIncludeSetted";
            eventTab0.DrawHighlight();
            MessageBox.Show("got here1");
