Public Structure GeneratorPosition
<GeneratorPosition .../>

The GeneratorPosition type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodGeneratorPositionInitializes a new instance of GeneratorPosition with the specified index and offset.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyIndexGets or sets the Int32 index that is relative to the generated (realized) items.
Public propertyOffsetGets or sets the Int32 offset that is relative to the ungenerated (unrealized) items near the indexed item.

  NameDescription
Public methodEqualsCompares the specified instance and the current instance of GeneratorPosition for value equality. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this GeneratorPosition. (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string representation of this instance of GeneratorPosition. (Overrides ValueType.ToString.)

  NameDescription
Public operatorStatic memberEqualityCompares two GeneratorPosition objects for value equality.
Public operatorStatic memberInequalityCompares two GeneratorPosition objects for value inequality.

GeneratorPosition is used by StartAt.

The following example illustrates how to use GeneratorPosition to start generating forward from the beginning of an item list.

	  ' Start generating items forward from the beginning of the item list
	  Dim position As New GeneratorPosition(-1, 0)
	  Dim direction As GeneratorDirection = GeneratorDirection.Forward
	  Dim generator As IItemContainerGenerator = CType(Me.itemsControl.ItemContainerGenerator, IItemContainerGenerator)
	  generator.StartAt(position, direction)

The following example illustrates how to use GeneratorPosition to start generating backward from the end of an item list.

	  ' Start generating items backward from the end of the item list
	  Dim position As New GeneratorPosition(-1, 0)
	  Dim direction As GeneratorDirection = GeneratorDirection.Backward
	  Dim generator As IItemContainerGenerator = CType(Me.itemsControl.ItemContainerGenerator, IItemContainerGenerator)
	  generator.StartAt(position, direction)

The following example illustrates how to use GeneratorPosition to start generating forward from the middle of an item list.

	  ' Start generating items forward,
	  ' starting with the first unrealized item (offset of 1),
	  ' after the 5th realized item
	  ' (the item with index 4 among all realized items) in the list
	  Dim position As New GeneratorPosition(4, 1)
	  Dim direction As GeneratorDirection = GeneratorDirection.Forward
	  Dim generator As IItemContainerGenerator = CType(Me.itemsControl.ItemContainerGenerator, IItemContainerGenerator)
	  generator.StartAt(position, direction)
