Mouse.DirectlyOver Property

Gets the element the mouse pointer is directly over.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Input
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public static IInputElement DirectlyOver { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.IInputElement
The element the mouse pointer is over.

Controls can be composed of multiple elements. DirectlyOver reports the specific element in the composite control the mouse pointer is over and not the control itself. For example, depending on which part of a Button the pointer is over, the DirectlyOver property could report the TextBox of the Content property or the ButtonChrome.

Use the IsMouseOver property on UIElement and ContentElement to determine whether the mouse is over an element, which includes its visual child elements or control compositing elements.

If an element has mouse capture, the mouse pointer is considered directly over the element regardless of the where the mouse pointer is.
