FrameworkElement.ForceCursor FrameworkElement.ForceCursor FrameworkElement.ForceCursor FrameworkElement.ForceCursor Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether this FrameworkElement should force the user interface (UI) to render the cursor as declared by the Cursor property.

public:
 property bool ForceCursor { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool ForceCursor { get; set; }
member this.ForceCursor : bool with get, set
Public Property ForceCursor As Boolean

Property Value

true if cursor presentation while over this element is forced to use current Cursor settings for the cursor (including on all child elements); otherwise false. The default value is false.

Examples

The following example forces the cursor value.

<StackPanel
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
>
  <StackPanel Name="CursorForced" ForceCursor="true" Cursor="Hand">
    <Label>Cursors Forced</Label>
    <TextBox>Fill me in!</TextBox>
  </StackPanel>
  <StackPanel Name="CursorNotForced">
    <Label>Cursors Not Forced</Label>
    <TextBox>Fill me in!</TextBox>
  </StackPanel>
</StackPanel>

Remarks

If you set this property to true you will override the cursor preferences established by child elements. Doing so in general application UI might be confusing for the user, particularly if child elements are attempting to specify cursors. Setting ForceCursor is more appropriate in control subclassing or compositing scenarios.
