PointerEventArgs PointerEventArgs PointerEventArgs PointerEventArgs Class


Contains the arguments returned by the last pointer event.

public : sealed class PointerEventArgs : ICoreWindowEventArgs, IPointerEventArgs
struct winrt::Windows::UI::Core::PointerEventArgs : ICoreWindowEventArgs, IPointerEventArgs
public sealed class PointerEventArgs : ICoreWindowEventArgs, IPointerEventArgs
Public NotInheritable Class PointerEventArgs Implements ICoreWindowEventArgs, IPointerEventArgs

This object is returned by a delegate registered for one of the following events:

// returning pointer events data through PointerEventArgs

void MyCoreWindowEvents::SetWindow( // implementation called by CoreApplication::Run(), provided for context
    _In_ CoreWindow^ window
    window->PointerCursor = ref new CoreCursor(CoreCursorType::Arrow, 0);

    // ...
    window->PointerPressed +=
        ref new TypedEventHandler<CoreWindow^, PointerEventArgs^>(this, &CoreWindowEvents::OnPointerPressed);
    window->PointerReleased +=
        ref new TypedEventHandler<CoreWindow^, PointerEventArgs^>(this, &CoreWindowEvents::OnPointerReleased);
    window->PointerMoved +=
        ref new TypedEventHandler<CoreWindow^, PointerEventArgs^>(this, &CoreWindowEvents::OnPointerMoved);

    // ...



: This class is not agile, which means that you need to consider its threading model and marshaling behavior. For more info, see Threading and Marshaling (C++/CX).


CurrentPoint CurrentPoint CurrentPoint CurrentPoint

Gets the pointer data of the last pointer event.

public : PointerPoint CurrentPoint { get; }
PointerPoint CurrentPoint();
public PointerPoint CurrentPoint { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property CurrentPoint As PointerPoint
PointerPoint PointerPoint

Information about the state and screen position of the pointer.


CurrentPoint corresponds to the last point retrieved by GetIntermediatePoints.

void MyCoreWindowEvents::GetPointerInfo(
    _In_ PointerEventArgs^ args
    Windows::UI::Input::PointerPoint^ currentPoint = args->CurrentPoint;

          // save or print currentPoint 


Handled Handled Handled Handled

Gets or sets whether the pointer event was handled.

public : Platform::Boolean Handled { get; set; }
bool Handled(); void Handled(bool handled);
public bool Handled { get; set; }
Public ReadWrite Property Handled As bool
bool bool

True if the pointer event has been handled by the appropriate delegate; false if it has not.

KeyModifiers KeyModifiers KeyModifiers KeyModifiers

Gets the keyboard key or keys used to modify the pointer input, such as the "Ctrl" key when pressed in conjunction with another key, as in Ctrl+C.

public : VirtualKeyModifiers KeyModifiers { get; }
VirtualKeyModifiers KeyModifiers();
public VirtualKeyModifiers KeyModifiers { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property KeyModifiers As VirtualKeyModifiers
VirtualKeyModifiers VirtualKeyModifiers

The active key modifiers.


GetIntermediatePoints() GetIntermediatePoints() GetIntermediatePoints() GetIntermediatePoints()

Retrieves the pointer data for up to the last 64 pointer locations since the last pointer event.

public : IVector<PointerPoint> GetIntermediatePoints()
IVector<PointerPoint> GetIntermediatePoints() const;
public IList<PointerPoint> GetIntermediatePoints()
Public Function GetIntermediatePoints() As IList<PointerPoint>( Of PointerPoint )
IList<PointerPoint> IList<PointerPoint>

The data for each pointer.
