This example will add a few items to the viewer and then perform hit-testing using the mouse showing the specific item part.

Run the demo, click the Example button and notice perform hit-testing.

Start with the ImageViewer example, remove all the code inside the example function (search for the "// TODO: add example code here" comment) and insert the following code:

JavaScript Example
// Clear all the images already the viewer 
// Use vertical view layout 
this._imageViewer.viewLayout = new lt.Controls.ImageViewerVerticalViewLayout(); 
// Make sure the item size is larger than the image size (thumbnails mode) 
this._imageViewer.itemSize = lt.LeadSizeD.create(200, 200); 
this._imageViewer.itemPadding = lt.Controls.ControlPadding.create(8, 8, 8, 20); 
this._imageViewer.imageBorderThickness = 1; 
// Add 4 items to the viewer 
for (var page = 1; page <= 4; page++) { 
   var item = new lt.Controls.ImageViewerItem(); 
   var imageUrl = "http://demo.leadtools.com/images/png/ocr" + page.toString() + ".png"; 
   item.url = imageUrl; 
var itemPartNames = [ "View", "Item", "Content", "Image", "TextArea", "Text", "Floater" ]; 
this._imageViewer.interactiveService.tap.add(function (sender, e) { 
   var point = lt.LeadPointD.create(e.position.x, e.position.y); 
   // Hit-test the item 
   var item = this.owner.hitTestItem(point); 
   // If we have an item, find out the part 
   if (item != null) { 
      var part = this.owner.hitTestItemPart(item, point); 
      infoLabel.textContent = "Clicked the " + itemPartNames[part] + " part of item at index " + this.owner.items.indexOf(item).toString(); 
   else { 
      infoLabel.textContent = "Click the view";
