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)

public event DragEventHandler Drop

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.
