Gets a value that indicates whether the stylus position corresponds to  results, which take element compositing into account. This is a .GTMTGTMT

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

public bool IsStylusDirectlyOver { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the stylus pointer is over the same element result as a hit test; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Unlike IsStylusOver, this property is only true if the stylus is over the element. If the stylus is instead over a child element or over elements that are part of an element's deeper compositing (the ), this property will be false. GTMT

Unless you know how a control is composited (for example, you use this property in a custom control template for a control that you define), this property might return unexpected results. For most scenarios where you are not authoring controls, use IsStylusOver instead.

If this element has stylus capture and this property is true at the time of capture, this property remains true until stylus capture is lost and the stylus is not over its bounds.

Touch, mouse, and stylus input exist in a particular relationship. For more information, see Input Overview.
