Rect.Contains Method (Rect)

Indicates whether the rectangle contains the specified rectangle.

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

public bool Contains(
	Rect rect


Type: System.Windows.Rect

The rectangle to check.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if rect is entirely contained by the rectangle; otherwise, false.

The following example shows how to use the Contains(Rect) method to determine if one rectangle is contained by another rectangle.

private bool rectContainsExample2()
    // Create a rectangle.
    Rect myRectangle1 = new Rect();

    // The Location property specifies the coordinates of the upper left-hand  
    // corner of the rectangle. 
    myRectangle1.Location = new Point(10, 5);

    // Set the Size property of the rectangle with a width of 200 
    // and a height of 50.
    myRectangle1.Size = new Size(200, 50);

    // Create second rectangle.
    Rect myRectangle2 = new Rect();
    myRectangle2.Location = new Point(12, 12);
    myRectangle2.Size = new Size(10, 60);

    // Using the Contains method, see if the second rectangle is  
    // contained within the first rectangle. doesContain is false 
    // because only part of myRectangle2 is contained in myRectangle1  
    // (myRectangle2 is too wide). 
    bool doesContain = myRectangle1.Contains(myRectangle2);

    return doesContain;
