VisualStateManager.RaiseCurrentStateChanging Method

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

Protected Sub RaiseCurrentStateChanging ( _
	stateGroup As VisualStateGroup, _
	oldState As VisualState, _
	newState As VisualState, _

	stateGroupsRoot As FrameworkElement _


Type: System.Windows.VisualStateGroup

stateGroupsRoot is Nothing.


newState is Nothing.

When the VisualStateGroup is set on the ControlTemplate of a control, the control parameter is set to the control that owns ControlTemplate. When the VisualStateGroup is set on a FrameworkElement, control is Nothing and you should use the stateGroupsRoot parameter.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding RaiseCurrentStateChanging in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s RaiseCurrentStateChanging method so that registered delegates receive the event.
