What' is System.Windows.Controls.TextBoxView ?


  • I have a simple scene: There are some TextBox controls and TextBlock controls in canvas.
      I want to use "HitTest" to  determine which control i selected when i click mouse on the contorls.

    But i only capture the TextBlock and can't capture TextBox
    I add a breakpoint  and find that: the type is "System.Windows.Controls.TextBoxView" which the "htr.VisualHit" return....

    But I can't find the System.Windows.Controls.TextBoxView in c#
    These are my code
     void canvas1_PreviewMouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
               VisualTreeHelper.HitTest((UIElement)sender, null, resultCallback, new PointHitTestParameters(e.GetPosition((UIElement)sender)));
            HitTestResultBehavior resultCallback(HitTestResult htr)
                return HitTestResultBehavior.Stop;

    any suggestion would be appreciated...

  • it is an internal lightweight class handling the rendering of content in the textbox.

  • Hi, LesterLobo
        Can I manipulate or reference it?

  • this is an internal class and hence not available for manipulation

  • ...I was implementing something similar to this and it took me a while to figure out how to get from a TextBoxView to a TextBox so thought I'd document that calling "VisualTreeHelper.GetParent" a few times did the trick!
