Application.RootVisual Property

Silverlight

Gets or sets the main application UI.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
public UIElement RootVisual { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.UIElement
A UIElement that is the main application UI.
ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

When setting this property, the specified value is not an instance of a class that derives from UIElement.

You can set the value of the RootVisual property only one time from code, although you get its value any number of times.

The following code example demonstrates how an application can use a Startup event handler to set the RootVisual property.


using System.Windows; // Application, StartupEventArgs

namespace SilverlightApplication
{
    public partial class App : Application
    {
        public App()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void Application_Startup(object sender, StartupEventArgs e)
        {
            // Specify the main application UI
            this.RootVisual = new Page();
        }
    }
}
