<object>

    oneOrMoreInputBindings
  </object.InputBindings>
</object>

XAML Values

oneOrMoreInputBindings

One or more InputBinding elements (typically the KeyBinding or MouseBinding derived classes). Each of these is expected to have a Command and Gesture attribute set.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Input.InputBindingCollection
The collection of input bindings.

Input bindings support the binding of commands to input devices. For example, MouseBinding implements input bindings that include properties that are particular to mouse devices.

The collection of input bindings will include both input bindings that pertain to the type as well as input bindings that are declared on the instance.

A related property, CommandBindings, maintains a collection of command bindings. These differ from input bindings in that they represent the next level down of command processing - actions that are tied to known commands.

The following example populates this property on a Window, with a single KeyBinding.

<Window.InputBindings>
  <KeyBinding Key="B"
              Modifiers="Control" 
              Command="ApplicationCommands.Open" />
</Window.InputBindings>
