The Mouse class provides additional properties and methods for determining the state of the mouse.

The following example creates a mouse button event handler that changes the color of the object that handles the event. The color that is chosen depends on whether the mouse button was pressed or released.

private void MouseButtonEventHandler(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.ButtonState == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
    {
        this.Background = Brushes.BurlyWood;
    }

    if (e.ButtonState == MouseButtonState.Released)
    {
        this.Background = Brushes.Ivory;
    }
}
