ITableProvider ITableProvider ITableProvider ITableProvider Interface


Exposes methods and properties to support access by a Microsoft UI Automation client to controls that act as containers for a collection of child elements. The children of this element must implement ITableItemProvider and be organized in a two-dimensional logical coordinate system that can be traversed (a Microsoft UI Automation client can move to adjacent controls, which are headers or cells of the table) by using the keyboard.

This pattern has guidelines and conventions that aren't fully documented here. For more info on what this pattern is for, see Table Control Pattern.

ITableProvider isn't implemented by any existing Windows Runtime automation peers. The interface exists so that custom control authors can support the automation pattern in a custom control, and implement their automation support using the same Windows Runtime managed or C++ API as they use to define control logic or other automation support.

Use TablePatternIdentifiers if you want to reference the ITableProvider pattern properties from control code when you fire automation events or call RaisePropertyChangedEvent.
