UIElement.IsRightTapEnabled property

Applies to Windows and Windows Phone

Gets or sets a value that determines whether the RightTapped event can originate from that element.

Syntax


public bool IsRightTapEnabled { get; set; }


<uiElement IsRightTapEnabled="bool" />

Property value

Type: System.Boolean [.NET] | Platform::Boolean [C++]

true if a RightTapped event can originate from this element; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The default is true (event enabled). If you set to false, the UIElement will no longer source the RightTapped event. This might be desirable if a parent element such as a list control should instead process the action as a manipulation, or if you want to specify that only some child items emit a RightTapped event that a parent handles after bubbling.

Another reason to suppress gesture events is if you are handling pointer-level events and don't want gesture recognition logic to impact how the pointer events are fired. For example, if the gesture recognition engine has to test for Tapped, then it must delay firing a PointerMoved event for small movements, because the user might lift the touch point soon and the input event would normally be gesture-recognized as a tap.

You do not need a mouse device to produce a RightTapped event. A RightTapped event is generated if a touch event becomes a Holding event when the touch position remained in one place. Even though Holding and RightTapped might result from the same user touch action, the design guidance for what that event means to an app is different, as is the timing.
