ITableProvider interface (uiautomationcore.h)

Provides 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 by using the keyboard.


The ITableProvider interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. ITableProvider also has these types of members:


The ITableProvider interface has these methods.


Specifies the primary direction of traversal for the table.

Gets a collection of Microsoft UI Automation providers that represents all the column headers in a table.

Gets a collection of Microsoft UI Automation providers that represents all the row headers in a 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 Table control pattern and Grid control pattern.
