IsMouseOver Property

ContentElement.IsMouseOver Property


Gets a value that indicates whether the mouse pointer is located over this element (including visual child elements, or its control compositing).

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

public bool IsMouseOver { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if mouse pointer is over the element or its child elements; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Although an analogous "IsMouseOverChanged" event does not exist, several similar events do. For example, you can use MouseEnter, MouseMove, and IsMouseDirectlyOverChanged.

If this element captures the mouse, this property remains true until mouse capture is lost and the mouse pointer leaves the element bounds.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


The following example creates a style that includes a property setter that gives an alternate visual behavior when a Hyperlink reports IsMouseOver true.
