Called before the MouseLeftButtonDown event occurs.
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
'Declaration Protected Overridable Sub OnMouseLeftButtonDown ( _ e As MouseButtonEventArgs _ )
protected virtual void OnMouseLeftButtonDown( MouseButtonEventArgs e )
The data for the event.
The OnMouseLeftButtonDown method is called before any event handler for the MouseLeftButtonDown event is called. This method allows derived classes to handle the MouseLeftButtonDown event without attaching a delegate. This is the preferred technique for handling the event in a derived class.
Notes to Inheritors
If you override OnMouseLeftButtonDown, you can prevent registered delegates from receiving events by setting Handled to true. For more information about routed events and the Handled property, see Events Overview for Silverlight.
