TreeViewItem.OnUnselected Method

Raises the Unselected event when the IsSelected property changes from true to false.

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

protected virtual void OnUnselected(
	RoutedEventArgs e


Type: System.Windows.RoutedEventArgs
A RoutedEventArgs that contains the event data.

This method updates the visual state of the TreeViewItem when the value of IsSelected changes, and then raises the Unselected event.

To perform operations when a TreeViewItem is selected or unselected, you should handle the SelectedItemChanged event on the parent TreeView control.

Raising an event invokes the event handler through a delegate. The OnUnselected method also allows derived classes to handle the event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.

Notes to Inheritors

When overriding OnUnselected in a derived class, be sure to call the base class’s OnUnselected method so that registered delegates receive the event.
