Expanded Public Methods

Show: Inherited
  Name Description
Public method Activate Activates the specified item. For a LayoutControlItem object, this method focuses the associated control.
Public method AddHandler Adds a routed event handler for a specified routed event, adding the handler to the handler collection on the current element. Specify as true to have the provided handler be invoked for routed event that had already been marked as handled by another element along the event route. (Inherited from System.Windows.UIElement)
