GetItemViewBounds Method


Current physical (in control pixel coordinates) bounds of any part of an item.

public virtual LeadRectD GetItemViewBounds( 
   ImageViewerItem item, 
   ImageViewerItemPart part, 
   bool clipped 
vb[VB Syntax] 
Public Overridable Function GetItemViewBounds( 
   ByVal _item_ As ImageViewerItem, 
   ByVal _part_ As ImageViewerItemPart, 
   ByVal _clipped_ As Boolean 
) As LeadRectD 
   virtual LeadRectD^ GetItemViewBounds( 
      ImageViewerItem^ item, 
      ImageViewerItemPart^ part, 
      bool clipped 



The item. Must be a valid item inside this viewer.


The item part requested.


true to return the bounding rectangle intersected with the current viewer control area, otherwise; false.

Return Value

The bounding rectangle in pixels or LeadRectD.Empty if the item is not visible, does not have an image or outside the clipping area.


Use ConvertBoundsToView to convert a bound from logical to physical coordinates.

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


This example will show how to use GetItemBounds to perform manual hit-testing on the item.

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 void GetItemViewBounds_Example() 
   // 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 += (sender, e) => 
      // Loop through each item, get the view bounds of the image (the physical location and size on the viewer surface of the item) 
      // and perform hit-testing 
      foreach (var item in _imageViewer.Items) 
         // Pass part as image and clipped as true, we are only interested on what we are seeing 
         var bounds = _imageViewer.GetItemViewBounds(item, ImageViewerItemPart.Image, true); 
         // Hit-test. GetItemViewBounds returns the value in the control coordinates, same as the mouse click 
         if (bounds.Contains(e.X, e.Y)) 
            MessageBox.Show("Clicked the image of item at index " + _imageViewer.Items.IndexOf(item)); 
static class LEAD_VARS 
   public const string ImagesDir = @"C:\LEADTOOLS22\Resources\Images";
