public override InputGesture Gesture { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Input.InputGesture

The key sequence. The default value is null.

Exception Condition

the value gesture is being set to is not a KeyGesture.

With the exception of the function keys and the numeric keypad keys, a KeyGesture must contain a Key and one or more ModifierKeys.

The following example shows how to bind a KeyGesture to a RoutedCommand using a KeyBinding (the markup and code examples specify different keys but are otherwise equivalent).

  <KeyBinding Command="ApplicationCommands.Open"
              Gesture="CTRL+R" />
KeyGesture CloseCmdKeyGesture = new KeyGesture(
    Key.L, ModifierKeys.Alt);

KeyBinding CloseKeyBinding = new KeyBinding(
    ApplicationCommands.Close, CloseCmdKeyGesture);
