Implementing the UI Automation TableItem Control Pattern


This documentation is intended for .NET Framework developers who want to use the managed UI Automation classes defined in the System.Windows.Automation namespace. For the latest information about UI Automation, see Windows Automation API: UI Automation.

This topic introduces guidelines and conventions for implementing ITableItemProvider, including information about events and properties. Links to additional references are listed at the end of the overview.

The TableItemPattern control pattern is used to support child controls of containers that implement ITableProvider. Access to individual cell functionality is provided by the required concurrent implementation of IGridItemProvider. This control pattern is analogous to IGridItemProvider with the distinction that any control implementing ITableItemProvider must programmatically expose the relationship between the individual cell and its row and column information. For examples of controls that implement this control pattern, see Control Pattern Mapping for UI Automation Clients.
