Examples

The following example shows how to set up a hit test using GeometryHitTestParameters for the HitTest method. The Point value that is passed to the OnMouseDown method is used to create a Geometry object in order to expand the range of the hit test.

// Respond to the mouse button down event by setting up a hit test results callback.
private void OnMouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
{
    // Retrieve the coordinate of the mouse position.
    Point pt = e.GetPosition((UIElement)sender);

    // Expand the hit test area by creating a geometry centered on the hit test point.
    EllipseGeometry expandedHitTestArea = new EllipseGeometry(pt, 10.0, 10.0);

    // Clear the contents of the list used for hit test results.
    hitResultsList.Clear();

    // Set up a callback to receive the hit test result enumeration.
    VisualTreeHelper.HitTest(myControl, null,
        new HitTestResultCallback(MyHitTestResultCallback),
        new GeometryHitTestParameters(expandedHitTestArea));

    // Perform actions on the hit test results list.
    if (hitResultsList.Count > 0)
    {
        ProcessHitTestResultsList();
    }
}
' Respond to the mouse button down event by setting up a hit test results callback.
Private Overloads Sub OnMouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
	' Retrieve the coordinate of the mouse position.
	Dim pt As Point = e.GetPosition(CType(sender, UIElement))

	' Expand the hit test area by creating a geometry centered on the hit test point.
	Dim expandedHitTestArea As New EllipseGeometry(pt, 10.0, 10.0)

	' Clear the contents of the list used for hit test results.
	hitResultsList.Clear()

	' Set up a callback to receive the hit test result enumeration.
	VisualTreeHelper.HitTest(myControl, Nothing, New HitTestResultCallback(AddressOf MyHitTestResultCallback), New GeometryHitTestParameters(expandedHitTestArea))

	' Perform actions on the hit test results list.
	If hitResultsList.Count > 0 Then
		ProcessHitTestResultsList()
	End If
End Sub

The IntersectionDetail property of GeometryHitTestResult provides information about the results of a hit test that uses a Geometry as a hit test parameter. The following illustration shows the relationship between the hit test geometry (the blue circle) and the target object (the red square).

Remarks

With the GeometryHitTestParameters class, you can use a Geometry value for hit testing, to determine whether any visual object intersects with the Geometry value.

You can also hit test with a Point value by creating a PointHitTestParameters object.

Note

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) hit testing only considers the filled area of a geometry during a hit test. If you create a point Geometry, the hit test would not intersect anything because a point has no area.
