Keyboard.Modifiers Property


Gets the set of ModifierKeys that are currently pressed.

public static System.Windows.Input.ModifierKeys Modifiers { get; }
Property Value

A bitwise combination of the ModifierKeys values.


The following example uses a bit AND comparison to determine if the Control modifier key is pressed.

if ((Keyboard.Modifiers & ModifierKeys.Control) > 0)
    button1.Background = Brushes.Red;
    button1.Background = Brushes.Blue;
If (Keyboard.Modifiers And ModifierKeys.Control) > 0 Then
	button1.Background = Brushes.Red
	button1.Background = Brushes.Blue
End If


ModifierKeys is a bit field enumeration, so it is possible for multiple modifier keys to be pressed at the same time. Use bit operations to determine the exact set of modifier keys pressed.
