Provides functionality to discover the schema for a bindable list, where the properties available for binding differ from the public properties of the object to bind to.

Use this interface if, for instance, you are using a System.Data.DataView object that represents a customer table, you want to bind to the properties on the customer object that the System.Data.DataView represents, not the properties of the System.Data.DataView.
This interface is not required for design-time support of a bindable list.
Binding to data can occur either at run time or in a designer, but there are rules for both. At run time, you can bind to data in any of the following:
Implementer of IList, provided the implementer has a strongly typed IList.Item(int) property (that is, the Type is anything but object). You can accomplish this by making the default implementation of IList.Item(int) private. If you want to create an IList that follows the rules of a strongly typed collection, you should derive from CollectionBase.
Implementer of System.ComponentModel.ITypedList.
In a designer, you can initialize binding to System.ComponentModel.Component objects by following the same rules.
