Public Event ContextMenuClosing As ContextMenuEventHandler
<object ContextMenuClosing="ContextMenuEventHandler" .../>

Identifier field

ContextMenuClosingEvent

Routing strategy

Bubbling

Delegate

ContextMenuEventHandler

To suppress closing context menus, handlers of the event should mark it as handled.

To use this event as an EventTrigger in a style, you must reference the underlying service event identifier:

<EventTrigger RoutedEvent="ContextMenuService.ContextMenuClosing">
  <!-- storyboard here ... -->
</EventTrigger>

(This usage is required because the event implementation on FrameworkContentElement that exposes the underlying service event does not correctly map the ContextMenuClosing identifier for use in triggers).

The following example implements a handler that changes the cursor over a named region DisplayArea (not shown). The comment hints at a UIElement usage, but in fact this sample would be identical if DisplayArea were a FrameworkContentElement.

' When the Radiobox changes, a new cursor type is set 
Private Sub CursorTypeChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As SelectionChangedEventArgs)

    Dim item As String = CType(e.Source, ComboBox).SelectedItem.Content.ToString()

    Select Case item
        Case "AppStarting"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.AppStarting
        Case "ArrowCD"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.ArrowCD
        Case "Arrow"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Arrow
        Case "Cross"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Cross
        Case "HandCursor"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Hand
        Case "Help"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Help
        Case "IBeam"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.IBeam
        Case "No"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.No
        Case "None"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.None
        Case "Pen"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Pen
        Case "ScrollSE"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.ScrollSE
        Case "ScrollWE"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.ScrollWE
        Case "SizeAll"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeAll
        Case "SizeNESW"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeNESW
        Case "SizeNS"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeNS
        Case "SizeNWSE"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeNWSE
        Case "SizeWE"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeWE
        Case "UpArrow"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.UpArrow
        Case "WaitCursor"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Wait
        Case "Custom"
            DisplayArea.Cursor = CustomCursor
    End Select 

    ' if the cursor scope is set to the entire application 
    ' use OverrideCursor to force the cursor for all elements 
    If (cursorScopeElementOnly = False) Then
        Mouse.OverrideCursor = DisplayArea.Cursor
    End If
