The children of this element must implement IGridItemProvider and be organized in a two-dimensional logical coordinate system that can be traversed (that is, a UI Automation client can move to adjacent controls) by using the keyboard.

This interface is implemented in a UI automation provider that must support the Grid control pattern.

IGridProvider does not enable active manipulation of a grid. To enable this functionality, ITransformProvider must be implemented.
