Public Function IsContentElement As Boolean
public bool IsContentElement()

Return Value

Type: System..::.Boolean
true if the element is a content element; otherwise, false.


A content element contains data that is presented to the user. An example of a content element is an item in a list box or a button in a dialog box. You typically use non-content elements (also referred to as peripheral elements) to work with the content in a composite control. An example of a non-content element is the button in a drop-down control.

This implementation does nothing more than calling IsContentElementCore.
