Press and hold maps to the right-click on a mouse. In Windows Vista, you can disable this behavior on elements if you foresee a situation where the user might hold the tablet pen down without intending to simulate a right-click.

The following example demonstrates how to enable press and hold on a Slider. This example assumes that there is a Slider called horizontalSlider1.

if (!Stylus.GetIsPressAndHoldEnabled(horizontalSlider1))
{
    Stylus.SetIsPressAndHoldEnabled(horizontalSlider1, true);
}
