ContentElement::PreviewMouseMove Event


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Occurs when the mouse pointer moves while the mouse pointer is over this element.

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

event MouseEventHandler^ PreviewMouseMove {
	virtual void add(MouseEventHandler^ value) sealed;
	virtual void remove(MouseEventHandler^ value) sealed;

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.
