ButtonBase.Click Event

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Occurs when a Button is tapped.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls.Primitives
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

public event RoutedEventHandler Click
<button Click="eventhandler"/>

Instead of using MouseLeftButtonDown or MouseLeftButtonUp, you should use the Click event to detect a button tap by the user. Because of the way that the ButtonBase class handles user tap events, MouseLeftButtonDown and MouseLeftButtonUp events do not occur when the click mode is a value other than Hover.

The following example demonstrates handling the Click event of a Button and setting its IsEnabled property.

void disableButtonClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    disableButton.IsEnabled = false;

        <Button x:Name="disableButton" Width="200"
		Click="disableButtonClick" Content="Disabled when clicked" />
