Property Value

The rectangle that is used to position the Popup control. The default value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Identifier field

PlacementRectangleProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

The PlacementRectangle property specifies a rectangle relative to which the Popup control is positioned when it opens. If the PlacementTarget property is not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the rectangle is defined relative to the PlacementTarget object. Otherwise, the specified rectangle is defined relative to the upper-left corner of the screen.

If the Placement property is set to Mouse, the PlacementRectangle property has no effect because the placement of the Popup is with respect to the mouse pointer.

This set of examples shows how to use the placement properties to specify the position of a Popup control.

You can determine the position of a Popup control by using the following properties:

The first four properties define a two-dimensional coordinate on the screen. The fifth property, Placement, positions the Popup and also defines its behavior if its content overlaps the screen boundaries.

Use a PlacementMode enumeration value to set the Placement property. For more information about the enumeration values for PlacementMode, see How to: Use the PlacementMode Enumeration to set Placement.

The following illustrations show how the placement properties work together to position a Popup control.

The following example shows how to set these Popup properties. For the complete sample, see Popup Position Sample.

Popup myPopup = new Popup();
myPopup.PlacementTarget = myEllipse;
myPopup.PlacementRectangle = new Rect(0, 0, 30, 50);
myPopup.VerticalOffset = 20;
myPopup.HorizontalOffset = 20;
myPopup.Placement = PlacementMode.Bottom;
myPopup.PopupAnimation = PopupAnimation.Fade;
myPopup.AllowsTransparency = true;
TextBlock popupText = new TextBlock();
popupText.Background = Brushes.Beige;
popupText.FontSize = 12;
popupText.Width = 75;
popupText.TextWrapping = TextWrapping.Wrap;
myPopup.Child = popupText;
