Private Sub MouseButtonDownHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
    Dim src As Control = TryCast(e.Source, Control)

    If src IsNot Nothing Then
        Select Case e.ChangedButton
            Case MouseButton.Left
                src.Background = Brushes.Green
            Case MouseButton.Middle
                src.Background = Brushes.Red
            Case MouseButton.Right
                src.Background = Brushes.Yellow
            Case MouseButton.XButton1
                src.Background = Brushes.Brown
            Case MouseButton.XButton2
                src.Background = Brushes.Purple
