Canvas Canvas Canvas Class

Definition

Defines an area within which you can explicitly position child objects, using coordinates that are relative to the Canvas area.

Examples

This example shows how to position a rectangle 30 pixels from the left and 30 pixels from the top of a Canvas.

<Canvas Width="640" Height="480" >
    <Rectangle Canvas.Left="30" Canvas.Top="30" 
       Fill="Red" Width="200" Height="200" />
</Canvas>

Remarks

Canvas is a layout panel that supports absolute positioning of child elements relative to the top left corner of the canvas.

Canvas layout panel

A Canvas is one of the Panel elements that enable layout. Canvas uses absolute positioning as its layout technique for its contained child elements. Each child element is rendered within the Canvas area. You control the positioning of elements inside the Canvas by specifying x and y coordinates. These coordinates are in pixels. The x and y coordinates are often specified by using the Canvas.Left and Canvas.Top attached properties. Canvas.Left specifies the object's distance from the left side of the containing Canvas (the x-coordinate), and Canvas.Top specifies the object's distance from the top of the containing Canvas (the y-coordinate).

Note

Because absolute positioning does not take into account the size of the app window, scaling, or other user-selected sizing, using a container element that adapts to different orientations and screen settings, such as Grid or StackPanel, is often a better choice than using Canvas. For more information, see Define layouts with XAML.

You can nest Canvas objects. When you nest objects, the coordinates used by each object are relative to its immediate containing Canvas.

Each child object of a Canvas must be a UIElement. In XAML, you declare child objects as content of a Canvas object element. In code, you can manipulate the collection of Canvas child objects by getting the collection that is accessed by the Children property.

In many cases, a Canvas is used solely as a container for other objects and does not have any visible properties. A Canvas and its children (if any) are not visible if any of these conditions are true:

The children of a Canvas (if any) are still visible even if the Canvas has any of these conditions:

A Canvas with no children and with a default Height and Width of Auto doesn't have dimensions. This is also the case if the Canvas has children but all the children have Visibility of Collapsed, or zero Height or Width.

Canvas XAML attached properties

Canvas is the host service class for several XAML attached properties. The purpose of these attached properties is to enable child elements in layout to report how they should be positioned in a Canvas parent.

These XAML attached properties are supported by Canvas:

  • Canvas.Left
  • Canvas.Top
  • Canvas.ZIndex In order to support XAML processor access to the attached properties, and also to expose equivalent get and set operations to code, each XAML attached property has a pair of Get and Set accessor methods. For example, the GetLeft and SetLeft methods support and provide the equivalent code-only support for Canvas.Left. Alternatively, you can use the dependency property system to get or set the value of the attached property. Call GetValue or SetValue, passing the arguments of the dependency property identifier to set, and a reference to the target object on which to get or set the value.
