[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public bool IsPressed { get; }

Identifier field

IsPressedProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

IsPressed is the state of a button that indicates the left mouse button or SPACEBAR is pressed over the button. When IsPressed is true, the control captures the mouse. As a result, the control will raise mouse events such as MouseEnter and IsMouseDirectlyOverChanged. Note that using the AccessText or ENTER does not change IsPressed or capture the mouse, but is does raise the Click event.

Starting with the .NET Framework version 3.0 Service Pack 1, IsPressed has a protected setter. To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework version 3.5.  For more information, see .NET Framework 3.5 Architecture.

This example shows how to use the IsPressed property in a trigger style.

<Style x:Key="Triggers" TargetType="Button">
  <Style.Triggers>
    <Trigger Property="IsMouseOver" Value="true">
      <Setter Property = "Background" Value="Red"/>
    </Trigger>
    <Trigger Property="IsPressed" Value="true">
      <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value="Green"/>
    </Trigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
</Style>

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003

The .NET Framework and .NET Compact Framework do not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.
