ContentElement.PreviewMouseUp Event


Occurs when any mouse button is released while the mouse pointer is over this element.

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

public event MouseButtonEventHandler PreviewMouseUp

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

The PreviewMouseUp event is often raised together with either PreviewMouseLeftButtonUp or PreviewMouseRightButtonUp, which correspond to a press of one of the two standard mouse buttons. PreviewMouseLeftButtonUp and PreviewMouseRightButtonUp are also routed events, but they are direct routed events, and the appropriate button-specific event is raised when the Mouse.PreviewMouseUp event reaches this element along the event route. See Remarks for PreviewMouseLeftButtonUp or PreviewMouseRightButtonUp.
