Checks whether a device property is set automatically by the video capture device.

Some video capture devices are capable of setting certain properties such as brightness, contrast or focus automatically. If the property automation is enabled, it cannot be set manually by calling the Grabber::setProperty ( tCameraPropertyEnum type, newPropertyValue ); method. The automation must be disabled with Grabber::setProperty ( tCameraPropertyEnum type, false ); before setting the affected value manually.
