FrameworkContentElement::ContextMenuClosing Event


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Occurs just before any context menu on the element is closed.

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

event ContextMenuEventHandler^ ContextMenuClosing {
	void add(ContextMenuEventHandler^ value);
	void remove(ContextMenuEventHandler^ value);

To suppress closing context menus, handlers of the event should mark it as handled.

To use this event as an EventTrigger in a style, you must reference the underlying service event identifier:

<EventTrigger RoutedEvent="ContextMenuService.ContextMenuClosing">
  <!-- storyboard here ... -->

(This usage is required because the event implementation on FrameworkContentElement that exposes the underlying service event does not correctly map the ContextMenuClosing identifier for use in triggers).

The following example implements a handler that changes the cursor over a named region DisplayArea (not shown). The comment hints at a UIElement usage, but in fact this sample would be identical if DisplayArea were a FrameworkContentElement.
