Exposes methods and properties to support access by a Microsoft UI Automation client to individual child controls of containers that implement IGridProvider. Implement this interface in order to support the capabilities that an automation client requests with a GetPattern call and PatternInterface.GridItem.
The IGridItemProvider interface has these types of members:
The IGridItemProvider interface has these properties.
|Read-only||Gets the ordinal number of the column that contains the cell or item.|
|Read-only||Gets the number of columns that are spanned by a cell or item.|
|Read-only||Gets a UI Automation provider that implements IGridProvider and that represents the container of the cell or item.|
|Read-only||Gets the ordinal number of the row that contains the cell or item.|
|Read-only||Gets the number of rows spanned by a cell or item.|
This pattern has guidelines and conventions that aren't fully documented here. For more info on what this pattern is for, see GridItem Control Pattern.
IGridItemProvider isn't implemented by any existing Windows Runtime automation peers. Notably, IGridItemProvider doesn't exist for the elements contained in a Grid and using the Grid as a layout container, or for GridViewItem. 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.
