Exposes methods and properties to support access by a Microsoft UI Automation client to controls that act as containers for a collection of individual, selectable child items. The children of this element must implement ISelectionItemProvider. Implement ISelectionProvider in order to support the capabilities that an automation client requests with a GetPattern call and PatternInterface.SelectionItem.
The ISelectionProvider interface has these types of members:
The ISelectionProvider interface has these methods. It also inherits methods from the Object class.
|GetSelection||Retrieves a UI Automation provider for each child element that is selected.|
The ISelectionProvider interface has these properties.
|Read-only||Gets a value that indicates whether the Microsoft UI Automation provider allows more than one child element to be selected concurrently.|
|Read-only||Gets a value that indicates whether the UI Automation provider requires at least one child element to be selected.|
This pattern has guidelines and conventions that aren't fully documented here. For more info on what this pattern is for, see Selection Control Pattern. However, you don't need to follow the guidance regarding IRawElementProviderFragmentRoot, that is specific to COM provider implementations and the interface doesn't exist in the Windows Runtime automation provider API.
