AdornerLayer.Remove Method

Removes the specified Adorner from the adorner layer.

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

public void Remove(
	Adorner adorner


Type: System.Windows.Documents.Adorner
The Adorner to remove.


Raised when adorner is null.

This method simply returns if the specified adorner does not exist.

This example shows how to programmatically remove a specific adorner from a specified UIElement.

This verbose code example removes the first adorner in the array of adorners returned by GetAdorners. This example happens to retrieve the adorners on a UIElement named myTextBox. If the element specified in the call to GetAdorners has no adorners, null is returned. This code explicitly checks for a null array, and is best suited for applications where a null array is expected to be relatively common.

Adorner[] toRemoveArray = myAdornerLayer.GetAdorners(myTextBox);
Adorner toRemove;
if (toRemoveArray != null)
  toRemove = toRemoveArray[0];

This condensed code example is functionally equivalent to the verbose example shown above. This code does not explicitly check for a null array, so it is possible that a NullReferenceException exception may be raised. This code is best suited for applications where a null array is expected to be rare.

try { myAdornerLayer.Remove((myAdornerLayer.GetAdorners(myTextBox))[0]); } catch { }
