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 UI Automation client can move to adjacent controls, which are headers or cells of the table) by using the keyboard.
The ITableProvider interface has these types of members:
The ITableProvider interface has these methods. It also inherits methods from the Object class.
|GetColumnHeaders||Returns a collection of UI Automation providers that represents all the column headers in a table.|
|GetRowHeaders||Returns a collection of UI Automation providers that represents all row headers in the table.|
The ITableProvider interface has these properties.
|Read-only||Gets the primary direction of traversal for the table.|
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++ APIs as they use to define control logic or other automation support.
