FrameworkContentElement.ContextMenuClosing Event

Occurs just before any context menu on the element is closed.

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

public event ContextMenuEventHandler ContextMenuClosing
/** @event */
public void add_ContextMenuClosing (ContextMenuEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_ContextMenuClosing (ContextMenuEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
<object ContextMenuClosing="ContextMenuEventHandler" .../>

Identifier field

ContextMenuClosingEvent

Routing strategy

Delegate

ContextMenuEventHandler

To suppress closing context menus, handlers of the event should mark it as handled.

To use this event as an EventTrigger in a style, you must reference the underlying service event identifier:

<EventTrigger RoutedEvent="ContextMenuService.ContextMenuClosing">
  <!-- storyboard here ... -->
</EventTrigger>

(This usage is required because the event implementation on FrameworkContentElement that exposes the underlying service event does not correctly map the ContextMenuClosing identifier for use in triggers).

The following example implements a handler that changes the cursor over a named region DisplayArea (not shown). The comment hints at a UIElement usage, but in fact this sample would be identical if DisplayArea were a FrameworkContentElement.

public void CursorTypeChanged(object sender, SelectionChangedEventArgs e)
{
    ComboBox source = e.Source as ComboBox;

    if (source != null)
    {
        ComboBoxItem selectedCursor = source.SelectedItem as ComboBoxItem;

        // Changing the cursor of the Border control 
        // by setting the Cursor property
        switch (selectedCursor.Content.ToString())
        {
            case "AppStarting":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.AppStarting;
                break;
            case "ArrowCD":                        
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.ArrowCD;
                break;
            case "Arrow":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Arrow;
                break;
            case "Cross":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Cross;
                break;
            case "HandCursor":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Hand;
                break;
            case "Help":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Help;
                break;
            case "IBeam":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.IBeam;
                break;
            case "No":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.No;
                break;
            case "None":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.None;
                break;
            case "Pen":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Pen;
                break;
            case "ScrollSE":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.ScrollSE;
                break;
            case "ScrollWE":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.ScrollWE;
                break;
            case "SizeAll":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeAll;
                break;
            case "SizeNESW":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeNESW;
                break;
            case "SizeNS":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeNS;
                break;
            case "SizeNWSE":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeNWSE;
                break;
            case "SizeWE":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.SizeWE;
                break;
            case "UpArrow":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.UpArrow;
                break;
            case "WaitCursor":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = Cursors.Wait;
                break;
            case "Custom":
                DisplayArea.Cursor = CustomCursor;
                break;
            default:
                break;
        }

        // If the cursor scope is set to the entire application
        // Use OverrideCursor to force the cursor for all elements
        if (cursorScopeElementOnly == false)
        {
            Mouse.OverrideCursor = DisplayArea.Cursor;
        }
    }
}
