The following example shows how to test whether a MouseGesture matches the input associated with an instance of an InputEventArgs. A MouseDown event handler compares the event data with the MouseGesture by using the Matches method.

private void OnMouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    MouseGesture mouseGesture = new MouseGesture(MouseAction.MiddleClick,ModifierKeys.Control);

    if (mouseGesture.Matches(null, e))
        MessageBox.Show("Trapped Mouse Gesture");
