hover over button RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    So far I have code that will start drawing a line when u do your first click until u release it.(which works fine)

    What I would like to do next is to, detect for each button while drawing the line if the line is going over the buttons

    Private Sub MainPage_PointerMoved(sender As Object, e As PointerRoutedEventArgs) Handles Me.PointerMoved
      For Each c As Button In g1.Children.OfType(Of Button)()
    'I think the code shud go in here
        End Sub

    But i'm not sure what will be the method to that? Any suggesstion?

    Thank You

  • You can get the Button's location from the VisualTreeHelper. Turning it the other way around, you can get the control at a given point with the same class. Either way, once you know the location of the two objects you can do the math to see if they intersect.

  • ok, so i'm not really sure how to use the VisualTreeHelper, but i tried to get the location of my buttons using the following code, but it's only giving out the top left corner position only, how can i get the rest?

     For Each c As Button In g1.Children.OfType(Of Button)()
                Dim gt As GeneralTransform = c.TransformToVisual(Nothing)
                Dim p As Point = gt.TransformPoint(New Point(0, 0))
                x111.Text += c.Name & " : " & p.ToString & Environment.NewLine

    Thank You
