This is an attached event. WPF implements attached events as routed events. Attached events are, fundamentally, a XAML language concept used to reference events that are handled on objects that do not, themselves, define events. The WPF further expands an attached event's capabilities, allowing it to traverse a route. Attached events do not have a direct handling syntax in code; to attach handlers for a routed event in code, use a designated Add*Handler method. For details, see Attached Events Overview.

The following example demonstrates how to change the background color of a TextBox when the TextBox captures and releases stylus events. This example assumes that there is a textbox called textBox1, and that the GotStylusCapture and LostStylusCapture events are connected to event handlers.
