UIElement.ManipulationStarted Event


Occurs when an input device begins a manipulation on the UIElement object.

Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

member ManipulationStarted : IEvent<EventHandler<ManipulationStartedEventArgs>,

The ManipulationStarted event occurs after the ManipulationStarting event. You can do the following with the ManipulationStartedEventArgs:

  • Get the element that the manipulation's position is relative to by using the ManipulationContainer property.

  • Get the origin of the manipulation by using the ManipulationOrigin property.

  • Cancel the manipulation by calling the Complete method.

For more information about manipulations, see the Input Overview. For an example of an application that responds to manipulations, see Walkthrough: Creating Your First Touch Application.
