ButtonBase.Click Event

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Occurs when a Button is tapped.

Namespace: System.Windows.Controls.Primitives
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.


Public Event Click As RoutedEventHandler
public event RoutedEventHandler Click
<button Click="eventhandler"/>


Instead of using MouseLeftButtonDown or MouseLeftButtonUp, you should use the Click event to detect a button tap by the user. Because of the way that the ButtonBase class handles user tap events, MouseLeftButtonDown and MouseLeftButtonUp events do not occur when the click mode is a value other than Hover.


The following example demonstrates handling the Click event of a Button and setting its IsEnabled property.

Private Sub disableButtonClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)
    disableButton.IsEnabled = False
End Sub
void disableButtonClick(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    disableButton.IsEnabled = false;
        <Button x:Name="disableButton" Width="200"
        Click="disableButtonClick" Content="Disabled when clicked" />
