Property Value


true if a MenuItem is pressed; otherwise, false. The default is false.



The following example shows how to use the IsPressed property in a menu item style. When the menu item is pressed, the style of its foreground, text size, and text style change.

<Style x:Key="Triggers" TargetType="{x:Type MenuItem}">
    <Trigger Property="MenuItem.IsPressed" Value="true">
      <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value="Red"/>
      <Setter Property = "FontSize" Value="16"/>
      <Setter Property = "FontStyle" Value="Italic"/>


Starting with the .NET Framework version 3.0 Service Pack 1, the IsPressed 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.
