public sealed class Adorner

The Adorner type exposes the following members.

Public methodAdornerInitializes a new instance of the Adorner class.

Public propertyBehaviorServiceGets or sets the BehaviorService associated with the Adorner.
Public propertyEnabledGets or sets a value indicating if the Adorner is enabled.
Public propertyGlyphsGets the Glyph collection.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodInvalidate()Forces the BehaviorService to refresh its adorner window.
Public methodInvalidate(Rectangle)Forces the BehaviorService to refresh its adorner window within the given Rectangle.
Public methodInvalidate(Region)Forces the BehaviorService to refresh its adorner window within the given Region.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Each Adorner can be enabled and disabled. Only enabled Adorner objects will receive hit test and paint messages from the BehaviorService. An Adorner can be viewed as a proxy between user-interface related elements, which consist of all Glyph objects, and the BehaviorService.

For more information, see Behavior Service Overview.

The following code example demonstrates how the Adorner class interacts with the Glyph and BehaviorService classes. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the BehaviorService class.

myAdorner = new Adorner();
