Member nameDescription
ReleaseSpecifies that the Click event should be raised when a button is pressed and released.
PressSpecifies that the Click event should be raised as soon as a button is pressed.
HoverSpecifies that the Click event should be raised when the mouse hovers over a control.

The following example shows three buttons that respond to clicks in three different ways.

  • Hover - the first button changes colors when the user hovers with the mouse over the button.

  • Press - the second button requires that the mouse be pressed while the mouse pointer is in the button.

  • Release - the third button does not reset the background color of the buttons until the mouse is pressed and released in the button.
