Implementation Guidelines and Conventions
When implementing the SelectionItem control pattern, note the following guidelines and conventions:
- Single-selection controls that manage child controls that implement IRawElementProviderFragmentRoot, such as the Screen Resolution slider in the Display Properties dialog for Windows, should implement ISelectionProvider; their children should implement both IRawElementProviderFragment and ISelectionItemProvider.
Required Members for ISelectionItemProvider
The following properties, methods, and events are required for implementing the ISelectionItemProvider interface.
|Required members||Member type||Notes|
If the result of a Select, an AddToSelection, or a RemoveFromSelection is a single selected item, an ElementSelected event (UIA_SelectionItem_ElementSelectedEventId) should be raised; otherwise raise ElementAddedToSelection (UIA_SelectionItem_ElementAddedToSelectionEventId) or ElementRemovedFromSelection (UIA_SelectionItem_ElementRemovedFromSelectionEventId) events as appropriate.
