Direct Manipulation defines a manipulation as the scrolling or zooming of some part of the application UI.

This enumeration provides the value for the UIElement.ManipulationMode property. By setting this property you can enable app code handling for manipulation events such as ManipulationStarted. You must set the ManipulationMode to a value other than System or None to enable handling the events from that element. For more info on manipulations, see Quickstart: Touch input.

Value enforcement for possible combinations is documented in the Remarks for the UIElement.ManipulationMode property.
