Windows Forms has accessibility support built in and provides information about your application that allows it to work with accessibility client applications. Examples of accessibility client applications are screen enlarger and reviewer utilities, voice input utilities, on-screen keyboards, alternative input devices, and keyboard enhancement utilities.

The DataGridView.DataGridViewAccessibleObject class inherits from the AccessibleObject class to provide information about the DataGridView control to accessibility client applications. Each class that represents a visual part of the DataGridViewDataGridViewColumnHeaderCell, DataGridViewRowHeaderCell, DataGridViewRow, and DataGridViewCell—also contains a class that inherits from AccessibleObject to provide information about the containing class and perform actions on behalf of accessibility client applications.

There are instances when you will want to provide additional information, such as the name or description of the DataGridView control, to accessibility client applications. There are two ways of providing this additional information. To provide limited accessibility information for existing controls, set the control's AccessibleName and AccessibleDescription property values, which will be reported to accessibility client applications.

NoteNote

You should change the AccessibleDefaultActionDescription and AccessibleRole property values only in rare situations, such as if you make a DataGridView look like a list.

Occasionally, you might require more accessibility information or different accessibility actions to be included with your custom DataGridView or DataGridViewCell. To customize accessibility, you can write your own class that derives from the DataGridView.DataGridViewAccessibleObject or DataGridViewCell.DataGridViewCellAccessibleObject classes and override the CreateAccessibilityInstance method. For example, if you are writing a custom row header cell that implements unique custom actions, such as special hit testing within your cell, you should create a class that inherits from the DataGridViewRowHeaderCell.DataGridViewRowHeaderCellAccessibleObject class and override the CreateAccessibilityInstance method.

The DataGridView exposes its data structure by using AccessibleRole values to define the data table hierarchy. For more information on exposing data tables to Microsoft Active Accessibility, see "Exposing Data Tables through Microsoft Active Accessibility" in the MSDN library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/library.
