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

  • The corresponding bubbling event is MouseMove.

  • Override OnPreviewMouseMove to implement class handling for this event in derived classes.

This event occurs both when the mouse pointer first enters into the element bounds, and also when the mouse pointer moves while still remaining within the element bounds.

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