TableItem Control Pattern

Describes guidelines and conventions for implementing ITableItemProvider, including information about methods. The TableItem 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 Types and Their Supported Control Patterns.
