public enum class SystemGesture

Member nameDescription
Drag

Maps to a left drag on a mouse.

Flick

Occurs with a short, quick stroke that translates into a specific command. The action taken by a flick is set system-wide. An application can listen for a Flick and prevent it from becoming one of the standard ApplicationCommands by setting the Handled property to true in the StylusSystemGesture event. Only Windows Vista supports flicks.

HoldEnter

Indicates that press and hold has occurred.

HoldLeave

Not implemented.

HoverEnter

Maps to a mouse hover. This can be used to show ToolTip rollover effects, or other mouse hover behaviors.

HoverLeave

Maps to a mouse leaving a hover. This can be used to end ToolTip rollover effects or other mouse hover behaviors.

None

No system gesture.

RightDrag

Maps to a right drag on a mouse. This can be used to drag an object or selection to a different area and is followed by the appearance of the shortcut menu which provides options for moving the object.

RightTap

Maps to a right-click on a mouse. This can be used to show a shortcut menu.

Tap

Maps to a left-click on a mouse. This can be used to choose a command from the menu or toolbar, take action if a command is chosen, set an insertion point, or show selection feedback.

TwoFingerTap

Maps to a double-click of a mouse.

When the operating system recognizes system gestures, the StylusSystemGesture event occurs. Many of the gestures map to traditional mouse events. For example, the Tap system gesture mimics a single left-click on a mouse.

The following example determines which type of system gesture that raised the SystemGesture event. This example assumes that there is a InkCanvas called inkcanvas1 and that SystemGesture is connected to the event handler below.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
