HitTestItem Method


First item that is under a physical (in viewer pixel) coordinates.

public virtual ImageViewerItem HitTestItem( 
   LeadPoint point 
   virtual ImageViewerItem^ HitTestItem( 
      LeadPoint^ point 



The point in physical (in viewer pixel) coordinates.

Return Value

The first item that is under this point or null if no such item exists.


HitTestItem method will return the item if any part of it is under the specified point. To further fine-tune the hit testing operation and obtain the specific item part, call HitTestItemPart passing the item obtained from HitTestItem and the desired part.

For more information refer to Image Viewer Layouts, Image Viewer Appearance, Image Viewer Items, Image Viewer Transformation, and Image Viewer Bounds and Transform.


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:

using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Controls; 
using Leadtools.Codecs; 
using Leadtools.Drawing; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing.Color; 
public ImageViewerForm _form = new ImageViewerForm(); 
public ImageViewer _imageViewer; 
private string[] itemPartNames = 
public void ImageViewerHitTestItemExample() 
   // Get the ImageViewer control from the form 
   _imageViewer = _form.ImageViewer; 
   // Clear all the images already the viewer 
   // Use vertical view layout 
   _imageViewer.ViewLayout = new ImageViewerVerticalViewLayout(); 
   // Make sure the item size is larger than the image size (thumbnails mode) 
   _imageViewer.ItemSize = LeadSize.Create(200, 200); 
   _imageViewer.ItemPadding = new Padding(8, 8, 8, 20); 
   _imageViewer.ImageBorderThickness = 1; 
   // Add 4 items to the viewer 
   using (var codecs = new RasterCodecs()) 
      for (var page = 1; page <= 4; page++) 
         var item = new ImageViewerItem(); 
         var fileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, string.Format("ocr{0}.tif", page)); 
         // Create a thumbnail from the image 
         using (var image = codecs.Load(fileName, page)) 
            item.Image = image.CreateThumbnail(180, 180, 24, RasterViewPerspective.TopLeft, RasterSizeFlags.Resample); 
         item.Text = string.Format("Item {0}", page - 1); 
   // Hook to the viewer mouse click event 
   _imageViewer.MouseClick += _imageViewer_MouseClick; 
private void _imageViewer_MouseClick(object sender, MouseEventArgs e) 
   var point = LeadPoint.Create(e.X, e.Y); 
   // Hit-test the item 
   var item = _imageViewer.HitTestItem(point); 
   // If we have an item, find out the part 
   if (item != null) 
      var part = _imageViewer.HitTestItemPart(item, point); 
      Debug.WriteLine(string.Format("Clicked the {0} part of item at index {1}", 
static class LEAD_VARS 
   public const string ImagesDir = @"C:\LEADTOOLS23\Resources\Images";
