MeasureCore Method

FrameworkElement.MeasureCore Method (Size)


Implements basic measure-pass layout system behavior for FrameworkElement.

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

protected override sealed Size MeasureCore(
	Size availableSize


Type: System.Windows.Size

The available size that the parent element can give to the child elements.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Size

The desired size of this element in layout.

This method overrides UIElement.MeasureCore to connect the WPF core-level and WPF framework-level layout measure implementations. The FrameworkElement implementation seals the method. To adjust the measure pass layout behavior of any element that builds on the WPF framework-level, override MeasureOverride instead. To adjust the measure pass layout behavior of an element that deliberately does not build on the WPF framework-level or use FrameworkElement, override UIElement.MeasureCore.
