IItemContainerProvider Interface

Exposes a method to enable applications to find an element in a container such as a virtual list-view.

IItemContainerProvider Members

FindItemByProperty Retrieves an element within a containing element, based on a specified property value.


The Item Container Control Pattern allows a container object to efficiently lookup an item by a specified Automation Element property, such as name, automationid, or IsSelected state. While this control pattern is introduced with a view to being used by virtualized containers, it can be implemented by any container that provides name lookup, independently of whether that container uses virtualization.
