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

protected internal override void OnVisualParentChanged(
	DependencyObject oldParent
public protected:
virtual void OnVisualParentChanged(
	DependencyObject^ oldParent
) override

	oldParent As DependencyObject



The previous parent. This may be provided as null if the DependencyObject did not have a parent element previously.

Notes to Inheritors:

If you override this method, always call the base implementation. The default base implementation performs some internal maintenance of reverse-inherited property state. Failing to call the base implementation will invalidate this state.

This method overrides VisualOnVisualParentChanged. FrameworkElement and Window both also override the UIElement implementation of OnVisualParentChanged, and Window seals it.
