Determines the category of content that is adjacent to a TextPointer in a specified LogicalDirection.

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

public enum TextPointerContext
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
ElementEndThe TextPointer is adjacent to the closing tag of a TextElement.
ElementStartThe TextPointer is adjacent to the opening tag of a TextElement.
EmbeddedElementThe TextPointer is adjacent to an embedded UIElement or ContentElement.
NoneThe TextPointer is adjacent to the beginning or end of content.
TextThe TextPointer is adjacent to text.

// This method will extract and return a string that contains a representation of  
// the XAML structure of content elements in a given TextElement.         
string GetXaml(TextElement element)
    StringBuilder buffer = new StringBuilder();

    // Position a "navigator" pointer before the opening tag of the element.
    TextPointer navigator = element.ElementStart;

    while (navigator.CompareTo(element.ElementEnd) < 0)
        switch (navigator.GetPointerContext(LogicalDirection.Forward))
            case TextPointerContext.ElementStart : 
                // Output opening tag of a TextElement
                buffer.AppendFormat("<{0}>", navigator.GetAdjacentElement(LogicalDirection.Forward).GetType().Name);
            case TextPointerContext.ElementEnd :
                // Output closing tag of a TextElement
                buffer.AppendFormat("</{0}>", navigator.GetAdjacentElement(LogicalDirection.Forward).GetType().Name);
            case TextPointerContext.EmbeddedElement :
                // Output simple tag for embedded element
                buffer.AppendFormat("<{0}/>", navigator.GetAdjacentElement(LogicalDirection.Forward).GetType().Name);
            case TextPointerContext.Text :
                // Output the text content of this text run

        // Advance the naviagtor to the next context position.
        navigator = navigator.GetNextContextPosition(LogicalDirection.Forward);
