The following example shows how to use the IntersectionDetail property of GeometryHitTestResult.

// Return the result of the hit test to the callback. 
public HitTestResultBehavior MyHitTestResultCallback(HitTestResult result)
    // Retrieve the results of the hit test.
    IntersectionDetail intersectionDetail = ((GeometryHitTestResult)result).IntersectionDetail;

    switch (intersectionDetail)
        case IntersectionDetail.FullyContains:

            // Add the hit test result to the list that will be processed after the enumeration.

            return HitTestResultBehavior.Continue;

        case IntersectionDetail.Intersects:

            // Set the behavior to return visuals at all z-order levels. 
            return HitTestResultBehavior.Continue;

        case IntersectionDetail.FullyInside:

            // Set the behavior to return visuals at all z-order levels. 
            return HitTestResultBehavior.Continue;

            return HitTestResultBehavior.Stop;
