ITableProvider Interface

Exposes methods and properties to support UI Automation client access to controls that act as containers for a collection of child elements. The children of this element must implement ITableItemProvider and be organized in a two-dimensional logical coordinate system that can be traversed (that is, a UI Automation client can move to adjacent controls) by using the keyboard.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Automation.Provider
Assembly:  UIAutomationProvider (in UIAutomationProvider.dll)

public interface ITableProvider : IGridProvider

The ITableProvider type exposes the following members.

Public propertyColumnCountGets the total number of columns in a grid. (Inherited from IGridProvider.)
Public propertyRowCountGets the total number of rows in a grid. (Inherited from IGridProvider.)
Public propertyRowOrColumnMajorRetrieves the primary direction of traversal for the table.

Public methodGetColumnHeadersGets a collection of UI Automation providers that represents all the column headers in a table.
Public methodGetItemRetrieves the UI Automation provider for the specified cell. (Inherited from IGridProvider.)
Public methodGetRowHeadersRetrieves a collection of UI Automation providers that represents all row headers in the table.

This control pattern is analogous to IGridProvider with the distinction that any control that implements ITableProvider must also expose a column and/or row header relationship for each child element.

Controls that implement ITableProvider are also required to implement IGridProvider so as to expose the inherent grid functionality of a table control.

Implemented on a UI Automation provider that must support the TablePattern and GridPattern control patterns.
