ScrollItem Control Pattern

Describes guidelines and conventions for implementing IScrollItemProvider, including information about methods. The ScrollItem control pattern is used to support individual child controls of containers that implement IScrollProvider. The existence of the ScrollItem control pattern on a control does not imply that its container or any ancestor must implement the Scroll control pattern.

When the container does implement the Scroll control pattern, the ScrollItem control pattern acts as a communication channel between a child control and its container to ensure that the container can change the currently visible content (or region) within its viewport to display the child control. For examples of controls that implement this control pattern, see Control Types and Their Supported Control Patterns.
