Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
This event data class is used with the following attached events:
This event data class is also used with the following routed events on base elements. These routed events forward the previously listed attached events to make them more accessible to the general element model in WPF.
The attached events and the base element routed events share their event data, and the bubbling and tunneling versions of the routed events also share event data. This can affect the handled characteristics of the event as it travels the event route. For details, see Input Overview.
A key can be in both the up and toggled states or the down and toggled states. For this reason, determining whether a key is up or down is not as simple as checking the KeyStates value as a numeric value. Instead, you should check the value by treating it as a flag enumeration. Use an AND comparison of the first bit. Alternatively, use the helper properties IsUp, IsDown, and IsToggled to determine whether a given key is up, down, or toggled.
This example shows how to detect when the Enter key is pressed on the keyboard.
This example consists of a Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) file and a code-behind file. For the complete samples, see Keyboard Key Sample.
