 property System::Windows::Rect AreaToApplyEffect { System::Windows::Rect get(); void set(System::Windows::Rect value); };
public System.Windows.Rect AreaToApplyEffect { get; set; }
member this.AreaToApplyEffect : System.Windows.Rect with get, set
Public Property AreaToApplyEffect As Rect

Property Value

The rectangular region of the visual to which the effect is applied. The default value is Empty.


When the rectangle has a Width or Height equal to 0, the effect will not be applied to the visual.

BitmapEffectInput expresses different behavior depending on whether the background of the element is transparent or not. If no background is present or defined, UIElement only considers the children for its size and the starting point for coordinates begin where the visual rendering starts.
