Starting with the .NET Framework version 3.0 Service Pack 1, the IsPressed property has a protected setter. To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework version 3.5.  For more information, see .NET Framework 3.5 Architecture.

The following example shows how to use the IsPressed property in a menu item style. When the menu item is pressed, the style of its foreground, text size, and text style change.

<Style x:Key="Triggers" TargetType="{x:Type MenuItem}">
  <Style.Triggers>
    <Trigger Property="MenuItem.IsPressed" Value="true">
      <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value="Red"/>
      <Setter Property = "FontSize" Value="16"/>
      <Setter Property = "FontStyle" Value="Italic"/>
    </Trigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
</Style>
