Event Data

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

Property Description
Item Gets the currently processed item.


When the mouse cursor enters the item’s bounds, the SvgImageBox control raises the SvgImageBox.QueryHoveredItem event, and then the ItemEnter event.

When the mouse cursor leaves the item’s bounds, the SvgImageBox.ItemLeave event fires.

The SvgImageBox.ItemHitTestType property affects the item detection (hit-testing). The property can be set to the following values:

  • Precise - An item is detected when a point is within the item’s graphical path. Groups do not have visible contours, and, thus, they cannot be hit-tested and selected in this mode.
  • BoundingBox - An item is detected when a point is within the item’s bounding rectangle. Groups are hit-tested in this mode when a point is within a rectangle within which all child items lie. This hit-test mode allows groups to be hovered (HoveredItem) and selected.
