A MouseGesture is a MouseAction with or without a set of ModifierKeys. Unlike a KeyGesture, a MouseGesture does not need to have a modifier key associated with it.

The following example show how to create a binding between a MouseGesture to a RoutedCommand.

<MouseBinding Gesture="Alt+MiddleClick"
              Command="ApplicationCommands.New" />
MouseGesture NewCmdMouseGesture = new MouseGesture();
NewCmdMouseGesture.Modifiers = ModifierKeys.Alt;
NewCmdMouseGesture.MouseAction = MouseAction.MiddleClick;

MouseBinding NewMouseBinding = new MouseBinding();
NewMouseBinding.Command = ApplicationCommands.New;
NewMouseBinding.Gesture = NewCmdMouseGesture;

// RootWindow is an instance of Window. 
RootWindow.InputBindings.Add(NewMouseBinding);
