Examples

The following example sets the Event property as part of an EventSetter in a markup style.

<StackPanel
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
  x:Class="SDKSample.EventOvw2"
  Name="dpanel2"
  Initialized="PrimeHandledToo"
>
  <StackPanel.Resources>
    <Style TargetType="{x:Type Button}">
      <EventSetter Event="Click" Handler="b1SetColor"/>
    </Style>
  </StackPanel.Resources>
  <Button>Click me</Button>
  <Button Name="ThisButton" Click="HandleThis">
    Raise event, handle it, use handled=true handler to get it anyway.
  </Button>
</StackPanel>

Remarks

You cannot set this property once the style containing the EventSetter is in use and thus is sealed. If you set this property in code and there is the possibility that the style is in use, check the value of the IsSealed property on the EventSetter instance before you attempt to set Event.
