A visual tree is a programming concept that is shared between WPF and Silverlight. In WPF, Visual is a class. Silverlight 5 does not expose a Visual class as an extension point, but still provides this helper class so that you can examine the visual tree structure.

Silverlight

Supported in: 5, 4, 3

Silverlight for Windows Phone

Supported in: Windows Phone OS 7.1, Windows Phone OS 7.0

For a list of the operating systems and browsers that are supported by Silverlight, see Supported Operating Systems and Browsers.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
