A virtualized item is typically an item in a virtual list; that is, a list that does not manage its own data. When an application retrieves an IUIAutomationElement for a virtualized item by using FindItemByProperty, UI Automation calls the provider's implementation of FindItemByProperty, where the provider may return a placeholder element that also implements IVirtualizedItemProvider. On a call to Realize, the provider's implementation of Realize returns a full UI Automation element reference and may also scroll the item into view.
