Dependency Property Information

Identifier field


Metadata properties set to true



Unlike IsStylusOver, this property is only true if the stylus is over the element. If the stylus is instead over a child element or over elements that are part of an element's deeper compositing (the visual tree), this property will be false.

Unless you know how a control is composited (for example, you use this property in a custom control template for a control that you define), this property might return unexpected results. For most scenarios where you are not authoring controls, use IsStylusOver instead.

If this element has stylus capture and this property is true at the time of capture, this property remains true until stylus capture is lost and the stylus is not over its bounds.

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