Examples

The following example creates a CanExecuteRoutedEventHandler and an ExecutedRoutedEventHandler and attaches them to a Button which is a command source for the Help command.

First, the Button is created and associated with the Help command.

<Button Command="ApplicationCommands.Help"
        Name="helpButton">Help</Button>

Next, the CanExecuteRoutedEventHandler and the ExecutedRoutedEventHandler are created.

private void HelpCmdExecuted(object sender, ExecutedRoutedEventArgs e)
{
    // OpenHelpFile opens the help file
    OpenHelpFile();
}
Private Sub HelpCmdExecuted(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ExecutedRoutedEventArgs)
    ' OpenHelpFile opens the help file
    OpenHelpFile()
End Sub
private void HelpCmdCanExecute(object sender, CanExecuteRoutedEventArgs e)
{
    // HelpFilesExists() determines if the help file exists
    if (HelpFileExists() == true)
    {
        e.CanExecute = true;
    }
    else
    {
        e.CanExecute = false;
    }
}
Private Sub HelpCmdCanExecute(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As CanExecuteRoutedEventArgs)
    ' HelpFilesExists() determines if the help file exists
    If HelpFileExists() = True Then
        e.CanExecute = True
    Else
        e.CanExecute = False
    End If
End Sub

Finally, the handlers are attached to the Button using the AddCanExecuteHandler and AddExecutedHandler.

CommandManager.AddExecutedHandler(helpButton, HelpCmdExecuted);
CommandManager.AddCanExecuteHandler(helpButton, HelpCmdCanExecute);
CommandManager.AddExecutedHandler(helpButton, AddressOf HelpCmdExecuted)
CommandManager.AddCanExecuteHandler(helpButton, AddressOf HelpCmdCanExecute)
