Note: This API is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is Effect. Gets or sets a rectangular region on the visual to which the BitmapEffect is applied.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Media.Effects
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public Rect AreaToApplyEffect { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Rect

The rectangular region of the visual to which the effect is applied. The default value is Empty.

When the rectangle has a Width or Height equal to 0, the effect will not be applied to the visual.

BitmapEffectInput expresses different behavior depending on whether the background of the element is transparent or not. If no background is present or defined, UIElement only considers the children for its size and the starting point for coordinates begin where the visual rendering starts.
