MouseButtonState Enumeration

Specifies the possible states of a mouse button.

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

public enum MouseButtonState
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
PressedThe button is pressed.
ReleasedThe button is released.

The MouseButtonState enumeration specifies constants which correlate to the state of a mouse button.

The following example shows a mouse event handler that determines which buttons are currently pressed by checking the button state of each mouse button.

private void MouseDownHandler(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.RightButton == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("The Right Mouse Button is pressed");
    }

    if (e.LeftButton == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("The Left Mouse Button is pressed");
    }

    if (e.MiddleButton == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
    {

        MessageBox.Show("The Middle Mouse Button is pressed");
    }

    if (e.XButton1 == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("The XButton1 Mouse Button is pressed");
    }

    if (e.XButton2 == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("The XButton2 Mouse Button is pressed");
    }
}
