Examples

The following example demonstrates how to create your own Glyph based class with Behavior associated with it. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the BehaviorService class.


// By providing our own behavior we can do something
// interesting when the user clicks or manipulates our glyph.
public  ref class DemoBehavior : public Behavior
{
public:
    bool OnMouseUp(Glyph^ g, MouseButtons^ button)
    {
        MessageBox::Show("Hey, you clicked the mouse here");

        // indicating we processed this event.
        return true;
    }
};

public ref class DemoGlyph : public Glyph
{
    Control^ control;
    BehaviorService^ behavior;

public:
    DemoGlyph(BehaviorService^ behavior, Control^ control):
      Glyph(gcnew BehaviorServiceSample::DemoBehavior)
      {
          this->behavior = behavior;
          this->control = control;
      }

public:
    virtual property Rectangle Bounds
    {
        Rectangle get() override
        {
            // Create a glyph that is 10x10 and sitting
            // in the middle of the control.  Glyph coordinates
            // are in adorner window coordinates, so we must map
            // using the behavior service.
            Point edge = behavior->ControlToAdornerWindow(control);
            Size size = control->Size;
            Point center = Point(edge.X + (size.Width / 2),
                edge.Y + (size.Height / 2));

            Rectangle bounds = Rectangle(center.X - 5,
                center.Y - 5, 10, 10);

        }
    }

        // within this glyph.  This gives us a chance to decide
        // what cursor to show.  Returning null from here means
        // the mouse pointer is not currently inside of the

Remarks

The sole purpose of a Glyph is to paint and hit test. A Glyph does not have a window handle (HWND), as it is rendered on the adorner window control of the BehaviorService. Each Glyph can have a Behavior associated with it. A successfully hit-tested Glyph has the opportunity to push a new or different Behavior onto the behavior stack of the BehaviorService.

For more information, see Behavior Service Overview.
