    WPF Series: Adorners, Commands and Logical Tree

    April 16, 2008 Share
    Today I'm going to tell you a WPF story. But before I start to dig deeper let me first introduce you the main characters in this post. Here they are: Adorner - adorners are simple UIElement decorators. Suppose that you have a RichTextBox and you want to place a comment box over it, so that users can comment on the text in the box. This can be archived with adorners. Actually the WPF framework uses adorners internally for exactly the same purpose when you edit and annotate FlowDocument in a DocumentViewer.
