Property Value

The state the button is in.


The following example creates a mouse button event handler that changes the color of the object that handles the event. The color that is chosen depends on whether the mouse button was pressed or released.

private void MouseButtonEventHandler(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
    if (e.ButtonState == MouseButtonState.Pressed)
        this.Background = Brushes.BurlyWood;

    if (e.ButtonState == MouseButtonState.Released)
        this.Background = Brushes.Ivory;
Private Sub MouseButtonEventHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
    If e.ButtonState = MouseButtonState.Pressed Then
        Me.Background = Brushes.BurlyWood
    End If

    If e.ButtonState = MouseButtonState.Released Then
        Me.Background = Brushes.Ivory
    End If
End Sub
