Gets a value that specifies whether the SHIFT key was down when a mouse event occurred.

value = eventargs.Shift

Property Value

Type: Boolean

true if the SHIFT key was down when the event occurred; otherwise, false.

This property is read/write, but should be considered read-only because there is no reason to change the reported information. There is no default.

Managed Equivalent

Get the value of Keyboard.Modifiers and check for Shift.


If the value of this property is true, there will also be a relevant keyboard event, which may not match the exact timing of the mouse event. This property reports the key state that existed when the mouse event occurred.
