Slider.IsMoveToPointEnabled Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the Thumb of a Slider moves immediately to the location of the mouse click that occurs while the mouse pointer pauses on the Slider track.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

member IsMoveToPointEnabled : bool with get, set

<object IsMoveToPointEnabled="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Thumb moves immediately to the location of a mouse click; otherwise, false. The default is false.

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true


When this property is set to false and a mouse click occurs along the Slider away from the Thumb, the Thumb moves in the direction of the mouse click. Instead of moving immediately to the mouse click location, the Thumb moves a distance that is defined by the SmallChange property for each mouse click.

The effect of multiple mouse clicks can be emulated by pressing and holding the left mouse button until the Thumb is repositioned to the desired location.

The following example shows how to set the IsMoveToPointEnabled property.
