Namespace: System.Windows.Input
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)

You cannot use this managed class in XAML.

The CommandManager is responsible for managing routed commands. For more information about commanding, see the Commanding Overview.

Use RegisterClassCommandBinding to register a CommandBinding to a class as opposed to an instance.

Use RegisterClassInputBinding to register an InputBinding to a class as opposed to an instance.

CommandManager forces the CommandManager to raise the RequerySuggested event. The RequerySuggested event informs a command source to query the command it is associated with to determine whether or not the command can execute.
