UIElement.PreviewStylusButtonDown Event


Occurs when the stylus button is pressed while the pointer is over this element.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public event StylusButtonEventHandler PreviewStylusButtonDown

This event creates an alias for the Stylus.PreviewStylusButtonDown attached event for this class, so that PreviewStylusButtonDown is part of the class members list when UIElement is inherited as a base element. Event handlers that are attached to the PreviewStylusButtonDown event are attached to the underlying Stylus.PreviewStylusButtonDown attached event and receive the same event data instance.

Touch, mouse, and stylus input exist in a particular relationship. For more information, see Touch Input Support in Windows Vista and Input Overview.
