Return Value

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.ModelElement
The primary element that the child shape represents.


This is intended to be used by accessibility, selection, and in-place editing. For example, the specified ShapeField may be part of a selection (as a DiagramItem), but the selection is only interested in the ModelElement that the ShapeField represents. Similarly, the specified ShapeField (as a DiagramItem) may be queried by an Accessibility client for the accessible name and description, which is automatically handled by the ModelElement.
