ContentElement::Drop Event


Occurs when the input system reports an underlying drop event with this element as the drop target.

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

event DragEventHandler^ Drop {
	void add(DragEventHandler^ value);
	void remove(DragEventHandler^ value);

This event creates an alias for the DragDrop::Drop  attached event for this class so that ContentElement::Drop is part of the class members list when ContentElement is inherited as a base element. Event handlers that are attached to the Drop event are attached to the underlying DragDrop::Drop attached event and receive the same event data instance.
