UIElementMouseRightButtonUp Event

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Occurs when the right mouse button is released while the mouse pointer is over this element.

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

public event MouseButtonEventHandler MouseRightButtonUp
event MouseButtonEventHandler^ MouseRightButtonUp {
	virtual void add(MouseButtonEventHandler^ value) sealed;
	virtual void remove(MouseButtonEventHandler^ value) sealed;
abstract MouseRightButtonUp : IEvent<MouseButtonEventHandler,
override MouseRightButtonUp : IEvent<MouseButtonEventHandler,
Public Event MouseRightButtonUp As MouseButtonEventHandler

Although this seems to follow a bubbling route through an element tree, it actually is a direct routed event that is raised and reraised along the element tree by each UIElement.

This event is one of several related events that report the mouse-button specifics of an underlying MouseMouseUp event, which is an attached event that is processed by each element along an event route.

The event data of this event exposes the event data of the underlying MouseMouseUp event. If that event is marked as handled along the event route, the mouse-button specific events are still raised; however, handlers of the mouse-button specific events must be added by explicitly calling AddHandler, with the option to handle events that are already marked as handled, in order to be listeners to the event. If you mark MouseRightButtonUp handled, you are essentially marking MouseMouseDown handled for all further listeners along the route, and on all related events.

Conceptually, think of this event (and other mouse-button events on UIElement) to be a mouse "service" (with the service definition provided by the Mouse class). The event adds the convenience of not needing to check the mouse button states (left-right, up-down) of the original mouse events in the event data. For more advanced scenarios, such as checking for states of non-standard buttons, you might need to use the APIs on the Mouse class rather than those on UIElement.
