HitTestResultBehavior Enumeration


Determines whether to continue the enumeration of any remaining visual objects during a hit test.

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

public enum HitTestResultBehavior

Member nameDescription

Continue hit testing against the next visual in the visual tree hierarchy.


Stop any further hit testing and return from the callback.

A hit test results callback method defines the actions that you perform when a hit test is identified on a particular visual object in the visual tree. After you perform the actions, you return a HitTestResultBehavior value that determines whether to continue the enumeration of any other visual objects.

You can enumerate all visual objects in a visual tree whose geometry contains a specified coordinate value. By returning Continue in your hit test callback method, you can identify all visual objects that are hit, even those that may be partly or wholly obscured by other visual objects.

The following example shows how to return a HitTestResultBehavior value from a hit test results 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.

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