ITextChildProvider ITextChildProvider ITextChildProvider ITextChildProvider Interface

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

ITextChildProvider 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.

The ITableItemProvider pattern doesn't have a pattern property identifier class.
