AutomationPeer.InvalidatePeer AutomationPeer.InvalidatePeer AutomationPeer.InvalidatePeer AutomationPeer.InvalidatePeer Method

Definition

Triggers recalculation of the main properties of the AutomationPeer and raises the PropertyChanged notification to the Automation Client if the properties changed.

public:
 void InvalidatePeer();
public void InvalidatePeer ();
member this.InvalidatePeer : unit -> unit
Public Sub InvalidatePeer ()

Remarks

Examples of main properties include, but are not limited to, LogicalChildren and BoundingRectangle.

Typically, updates and notifications happen automatically after the update of the layout in Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). (The update occurs in response to the LayoutUpdated event.) Sometimes, however, properties change without raising the LayoutUpdated event. For example, when the whole Window moves, the LayoutUpdated event is not raised. In this example, the set of BoundingRectangle objects change because the objects are expressed in screen coordinates. Therefore, the Window must call InvalidatePeer on its peer on WindowAutomationPeer.
