Issue 1Assume that you have a Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) application, and that one or more of the following is true:
- Another process (such as a handwriting recognizer or an assistive tool) is using Microsoft Text Services Framework (TSF) to query the screen position of text in your application.
- Such a query arrives at a time when there is pending layout work in your application.
- The text that is queried is changed by executing the pending layout work.
This issue depends on the relative timing of your application and the TSF client process. Therefore, it seems to be an intermittent or random failure.
This update prevents the exception from occurring, but instead returns an error to the TSF query when this situation occurs.
