FrameworkContentElement.ForceCursor Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether this FrameworkContentElement should force the user interface (UI) to render the cursor as declared by this instance's Cursor property.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
public bool ForceCursor { get; set; }
<object ForceCursor="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to force cursor presentation while over this element to use this instance's setting for the cursor (including on all child elements); otherwise false. The default value is false.

Identifier field

ForceCursorProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

Setting this property to true will override the cursor preferences established by child elements. Doing so in general application UI might be confusing for the user, particularly if child elements are attempting to specify cursors. Setting ForceCursor is more appropriate in control subclassing or compositing scenarios.

The following example forces the cursor while over the element.

<StackPanel
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
>
  <StackPanel Name="CursorForced" ForceCursor="true" Cursor="Hand">
    <Label>Cursors Forced</Label>
    <TextBox>Fill me in!</TextBox>
  </StackPanel>
  <StackPanel Name="CursorNotForced">
    <Label>Cursors Not Forced</Label>
    <TextBox>Fill me in!</TextBox>
  </StackPanel>
</StackPanel>
