#30 – Visual Class

Visual is the base class for all classes that represent objects that can be rendered to a WPF window or page.  It provides support for hit testing, clipping and coordinate transforms, as well as for rendering itself to a window or page.  It also models the object’s participation in a WPF visual tree, through its VisualParent property and GetVisualChild method.

The Visual class can also be used a starting point for implementing new (lightweight) WPF controls.
