Rendering logic must be provided by classes that take child elements as part of their content model, or in derived classes.
deliberately parallels many of the same APIs as FrameworkElement. Note that certain APIs found on FrameworkElement will not have a equivalent. Several of the FrameworkElement APIs are for functionality such as geometry representation or layout, which are not relevant for a .
The majority of existing derived classes will be found in the System.Windows.Documents namespace. Many of these derived classes implement elements for the flow document model. Certain derived classes such as Hyperlink have some control-like functionality, but are derived from such that the control-like elements can still participate in the flow document model.
