CustomPopupPlacement Structure

Defines custom placement parameters for a Popup control.

Namespace: System.Windows.Controls.Primitives
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)

public struct CustomPopupPlacement
public final class CustomPopupPlacement extends ValueType
<CustomPopupPlacement .../>

The CustomPopupPlacement structure defines a location for a Popup control with respect to its parent, and defines how the Popup moves to become more visible when it is obscured by a screen boundary.

A System.Windows.Controls.Primitives.CustomPopupPlacementCallback delegate returns an array of these structures as custom placement options for a Popup when the Placement property is set to Custom.

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;
