UIElement.IsTapEnabled property

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Gets or sets a value that determines whether the Tapped event can originate from that element.

Syntax


public bool IsTapEnabled { get; set; }


<uiElementIsTapEnabled="bool" />

Property value

Type: System.Boolean [.NET] | Platform::Boolean [C++]

true if a Tapped event can originate from this element; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The default is true (event enabled). If you set to false, the UIElement will no longer source the Tapped event. This might be desirable if a parent element such as a list control should instead process the action as a manipulation, or if you want to specify that only some child items emit a Tapped event that a parent handles after bubbling.

Another reason to suppress gesture events is if you are handling pointer-level events and don't want gesture recognition logic to impact how the pointer events are fired. For example, if the gesture recognition engine has to test for Tapped, then it must delay firing a PointerMoved event for small movements, because the user might lift the touch point soon and the input event would normally be gesture-recognized as a tap.
