The following example shows how to determine whether a menu item is highlighted.

private void Highlight(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    if (item1.IsHighlighted == true)
        hlbtn.Content = "Item is highlighted.";
Private Sub Highlight(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    If item1.IsHighlighted = True Then
        hlbtn.Content = "Item is highlighted."
    End If
End Sub


Starting with the .NET Framework version 3.0 Service Pack 1, the IsHighlighted property has a protected setter. To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework version 3.5. For more information, see .NET Framework Versions and Dependencies.
