public:
property RoutedEvent^ Event {
	RoutedEvent^ get ();
	void set (RoutedEvent^ value);
}
<object Event="RoutedEvent" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Windows::RoutedEvent
The identifier field of the routed event.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

Attempted to set this property on a sealed EventSetter .

You cannot set this property once the style containing the EventSetter is in use and thus is sealed. If you set this property in code and there is the possibility that the style is in use, check the value of the IsSealed property on the EventSetter instance before you attempt to set Event.

The following example sets the Event property as part of an EventSetter in a markup style.

      <EventSetter Event="Click" Handler="b1SetColor"/>
    </Style>
  </StackPanel.Resources>
  <Button>Click me</Button>
  <Button Name="ThisButton" Click="HandleThis">
    Raise event, handle it, use handled=true handler to get it anyway.
  </Button>
