Event Data

The CustomHitTest event's data class is CustomHitTestEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Angle Gets the angle by which the diagram item is rotated around its anchor point relative to the diagram canvas.
Bounds Gets the bounds of the item to which the test points belongs.
Item Gets the item to which the test point belongs.
ItemHeight Gets the height of the item to which the test point belongs.

The CustomHitTest event allows you to implement a custom hit testing logic. It is mainly designed to be used with the DiagramControl.CustomDrawItem event.

Setting the event’s CustomHitTestEventArgs.Result property to false prevents the end-user from selecting the diagram item hovered by the pointer.
