Examples

This example describes how to use event triggers in a style to animate the MouseEnter and MouseLeave events of a FrameworkElement. As mentioned above, adding a TriggerAction child to an EventTrigger object implicitly adds it to the TriggerActionCollection for the EventTrigger object. Therefore, in this example, <EventTrigger.Actions> is implicit.

<Style TargetType="Rectangle">
  <Setter Property="Width" Value="50" />
  <Setter Property="Height" Value="50" />
  <Setter Property="Margin" Value="20" />
  <Setter Property="HorizontalAlignment" Value="Left" />
  <Style.Triggers>
    <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="MouseEnter">
        <BeginStoryboard>
            <Storyboard>
              <DoubleAnimation To="300" Duration="0:0:1.5" 
                AccelerationRatio="0.10" DecelerationRatio="0.25" 
                Storyboard.TargetProperty="(Canvas.Width)" />
            </Storyboard>
        </BeginStoryboard>
    </EventTrigger>
    <EventTrigger RoutedEvent="MouseLeave">
        <BeginStoryboard>
            <Storyboard>
              <DoubleAnimation Duration="0:0:1.5" 
                AccelerationRatio="0.10" DecelerationRatio="0.25" 
                Storyboard.TargetProperty="(Canvas.Width)" />
            </Storyboard>
        </BeginStoryboard>
    </EventTrigger>
  </Style.Triggers>
</Style>

Remarks

Unlike Trigger, EventTrigger has no concept of termination of state, so the action will not be undone once the condition that raised the event is no longer true.

Adding a TriggerAction child to an EventTrigger object implicitly adds it to the TriggerActionCollection for the EventTrigger object.

Note

This property can only be set in Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) via the collection syntax shown, or by accessing the collection object and using its various methods such as Add. The property to access the collection object itself is read-only, the collection itself is read-write.
