A row of cells in a grid.

A row (role) is assigned for the cells of a grid that are arranged in a row. Ensure that the row is owned by rowgroup, grid or treegrid. The grid cells are owned by role.

In a treegrid, authors may mark rows as expandable, using the aria-expanded attribute to indicate the present status. This is not the case for an ordinary grid, in which the aria-expanded attribute is not present.

Authors must ensure elements with role row are contained in, or owned by, an element with the role grid, rowgroup, treegrid.
