A MouseGesture is a MouseAction with or without a set of ModifierKeys. Unlike a KeyGesture, a MouseGesture does not need to have a modifier key associated with it.

The following example show how to create a binding between a MouseGesture to a RoutedCommand.


<MouseBinding Gesture="Alt+MiddleClick"
              Command="ApplicationCommands.New" />



			Dim NewCmdMouseGesture As New MouseGesture()
			NewCmdMouseGesture.Modifiers = ModifierKeys.Alt
			NewCmdMouseGesture.MouseAction = MouseAction.MiddleClick

			Dim NewMouseBinding As New MouseBinding()
            NewMouseBinding.Command = ApplicationCommands.[New]
			NewMouseBinding.Gesture = NewCmdMouseGesture

			' RootWindow is an instance of Window. 
			RootWindow.InputBindings.Add(NewMouseBinding)
