FrameworkContentElement.Loaded Event

Occurs when the element is laid out, rendered, and ready for interaction.

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

public event RoutedEventHandler Loaded
/** @event */
public void add_Loaded (RoutedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_Loaded (RoutedEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
<object Loaded="RoutedEventHandler" .../>

Identifier field


Routing strategy




Direct routed events do not follow a route, they are only handled within the same element on which they are raised. Direct routed events do support other routed event behavior: they support an accessible handlers collection, and can be used as an EventTrigger in a style.

This example shows how handle the FrameworkElement.Loaded event, and an appropriate scenario for handling that event. The handler creates a Button when the page loads .

The following example uses Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) together with a code-behind file.


void OnLoad(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    Button b1 = new Button();
    b1.Content = "New Button";
    b1.Height = 25;
    b1.Width = 200;
    b1.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
