MouseGesture Class

Defines a mouse input gesture that can be used to invoke a command.

Namespace: System.Windows.Input
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)
XML Namespace:  http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation

public class MouseGesture : InputGesture
/** @attribute TypeConverterAttribute(System.Windows.Input.MouseGestureConverter) */ 
public class MouseGesture extends InputGesture
public class MouseGesture extends InputGesture
<MouseGesture .../>
<object property="mouseAction"/>
- or -
<object property="oneOrMoreModifierKeys"/>
- or -
<object property="mouseAction+oneOrMoreModifierKeys"/>

 mouseAction   MouseAction  A single mouse action.  For more information, see the MouseAction property.  oneOrMoreModifierKeys  One or more modifier keys, defined by the ModifierKeys enumeration, delimited with a "+" character.  For more information, see the Modifiers property. 

Unlike a KeyGesture, a MouseAction does not have to be paired with ModifierKeys to be a valid MouseGesture.

A MouseGesture can be bound to an ICommand through a MouseBinding so that the command is invoked when the MouseGesture occurs.

The following example shows to create a MouseGesture and associate it with a RoutedCommand through a MouseBinding. When the mouse wheel is clicked while the Control key is pressed, the Open is invoked.

<MouseBinding Gesture="Control+WheelClick"
              Command="ApplicationCommands.Open" />

MouseGesture OpenCmdMouseGesture = new MouseGesture();
OpenCmdMouseGesture.MouseAction = MouseAction.WheelClick;
OpenCmdMouseGesture.Modifiers = ModifierKeys.Control;

MouseBinding OpenCmdMouseBinding = new MouseBinding();
OpenCmdMouseBinding.Gesture = OpenCmdMouseGesture;
OpenCmdMouseBinding.Command = ApplicationCommands.Open;
