FrameworkElement.MeasureCore Method

Implements basic measure-pass layout system behavior for FrameworkElement.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

'Declaration
Protected Overrides NotOverridable Function MeasureCore ( _
	availableSize As Size _
) As Size
'Usage
Dim availableSize As Size 
Dim returnValue As Size 

returnValue = Me.MeasureCore(availableSize)
You cannot use methods in XAML.

Parameters

availableSize
Type: System.Windows.Size

The available size that the parent element can give to the child elements.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Size
The desired size of this element in layout.

This method overrides UIElement.MeasureCore to connect the WPF core-level and WPF framework-level layout measure implementations. The FrameworkElement implementation seals the method. To adjust the measure pass layout behavior of any element that builds on the WPF framework-level, override MeasureOverride instead. To adjust the measure pass layout behavior of an element that deliberately does not build on the WPF framework-level or use FrameworkElement, override UIElement.MeasureCore.

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003
