UIElementStylusEnter Event

Occurs when the stylus enters the bounds of this element.

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

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

StylusEnter is a that uses the direct event handling routing strategy. Direct routed events are not raised along a route; instead, they are handled in the same element where they are raised. However, they do enable other aspects of routed event behavior, such as event triggers in styles.

Although StylusEnter tracks when the stylus enters the bounds of an element, this event more literally reports that the property value has changed from false to true on this element.

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

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