Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Button As MouseButtons

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.MouseButtons
One of the MouseButtons values.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the LinkLabel.LinkClicked event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type LinkLabel named LinkLabel1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the LinkLabel.LinkClicked event.

Private Sub LinkLabel1_LinkClicked(sender as Object, e as LinkLabelLinkClickedEventArgs) _ 
     Handles LinkLabel1.LinkClicked

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Button", e.Button)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Link", e.Link)
    messageBoxVB.AppendLine()
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"LinkClicked Event")

End Sub
