Property Value

Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject

A DependencyObject value that represents the visual object that was hit.

DependencyObject is the type rather than Visual so that hit testing can bridge 2D and 3D trees through a viewport.

The following example shows how to retrieve the VisualHit property value in a hit test callback method.

// Return the result of the hit test to the callback.
public HitTestResultBehavior MyHitTestResult(HitTestResult result)
{
    // Add the hit test result to the list that will be processed after the enumeration.
    hitResultsList.Add(result.VisualHit);

    // Set the behavior to return visuals at all z-order levels.
    return HitTestResultBehavior.Continue;
}
