Property Value

A Visual object that represents the hit test result.

The VisualHit value could potentially represent multiple visual objects during a single hit test. The hit test callback method defines the actions 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. The order of enumeration of hit visual objects is by z-order.

The following example shows how to access the VisualHit property in a hit test results callback function.

// 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;
