Extends the ITextProvider interface to enable Microsoft UI Automation providers to expose textual content that is the target of an annotation or selection. Implement this interface in order to support the capabilities that an automation client requests with a GetPattern call and PatternInterface.Text2.
The ITextProvider2 interface has these types of members:
The ITextProvider2 interface has these methods. It also inherits methods from the Object class.
|GetCaretRange||Retrieves a zero-length text range at the location of the caret that belongs to the text-based control.|
|RangeFromAnnotation||Exposes a text range that contains the text that is the target of the annotation associated with the specified annotation element.|
For more info on this pattern, see Text and TextRange Control Patterns.
ITextProvider, ITextProvider2 and ITextRangeProvider aren't implemented by any existing Windows Runtime automation peers using this definition of the interface. The text models supported by Windows Runtime text controls such as TextBox and RichTextBlock do implement some of these patterns, but do so at a native level that doesn't appear in the Windows Runtime definitions of the API surface. For more info, see the peer classes for the various Windows Runtime text controls.
The ITextProvider2 pattern doesn't have a Windows Runtime property identifier class.
ITextProvider2 inherits ITextProvider. Types that implement ITextProvider2 also implement the interface members of ITextProvider.
