  • Hi Ashish,

    This is expected and documented behavior. The WebView is not a normal control and cannot have other controls placed on top of it. See the Remarks in the WebView documentation:

    WebView has the characteristic that other UI regions such as controls cannot be rendered on top of the WebView. This is because of how window regions are handled internally, particularly how input events are processed and how the screen draws. If you want to render HTML content and also place other UI elements on top of that HTML content, you should use WebViewBrush as the render area. The WebView still provides the HTML source information, and you reference that WebView through element name binding and the SourceName property. WebViewBrush does not have this overlay limitation.

  • Hi,

     

    Not clear your point, would you please provide us some XAML codes so that we can reproduce this issue?
