MenuScrollingVisibilityConverter Class

 

Represents a data-binding converter to handle the visibility of repeat buttons in scrolling menus.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

System.Object
  System.Windows.Controls.MenuScrollingVisibilityConverter

public sealed class MenuScrollingVisibilityConverter : IMultiValueConverter

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodMenuScrollingVisibilityConverter()

Initializes a new instance of the MenuScrollingVisibilityConverter class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodConvert(Object[], Type, Object, CultureInfo)

Called when moving a value from a source to a target.

System_CAPS_pubmethodConvertBack(Object, Type[], Object, CultureInfo)

Not supported.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The MenuScrollingVisibilityConverter determines whether a menu should display the repeat buttons when a menu has too many items to fit on the screen at once. Use the converter with a MultiBinding that has four bindings. The four bindings should be to properties of the parent ScrollViewer: If the menu items are organized vertically (which is the default for menus), bind to ComputedVerticalScrollBarVisibility, VerticalOffset, ExtentHeight, and ViewportHeight. If the menu items are organized horizontally, bind to ComputedHorizontalScrollBarVisibility, HorizontalOffset, ExtentWidth, and ViewportWidth.

Set MultiBinding.ConverterParameter to 0 or 100. The value is treated as a percentage and determines whether a button is hidden when the ScrollViewer is at the given location. When the ScrollViewer is at the top, the position of the ScrollViewer is 0% and the top button is hidden. When the ScrollViewer is at the bottom, the position of the ScrollViewer is 100% and the bottom button is hidden.

The following example uses the MenuScrollingVisibilityConverter in the ControlTemplate of a ScrollViewer for a menu. For the complete example, see Styling with ControlTemplates Sample.

<!--ScrollViewer for a MenuItem-->
