public UIElements.UsageHints usageHints ;


A combination of hint values that specify high-level intended usage patterns for the VisualElement. This property can only be set when the VisualElement is not yet part of a Panel. Once part of a Panel, this property becomes effectively read-only, and attempts to change it will throw an exception. The specification of proper UsageHints drives the system to make better decisions on how to process or accelerate certain operations based on the anticipated usage pattern. Note that those hints do not affect behavioral or visual results, but only affect the overall performance of the panel and the elements within. Generally it advised to always consider specifying the proper UsageHints, but keep in mind that some UsageHints may be internally ignored under certain conditions (e.g. due to hardware limitations on the target platform).
