PointerEventHandler PointerEventHandler PointerEventHandler PointerEventHandler Delegate

Definition

Represents the method that will handle pointer message events such as PointerPressed.

public : delegate void PointerEventHandler(Platform::Object sender, PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
struct PointerEventHandler : winrt::Windows::Foundation::IUnknown
{
   PointerEventHandler(std::nullptr_t = nullptr) noexcept;
   template <typename L> PointerEventHandler(L lambda);
   template <typename F> PointerEventHandler(F* function);
   template <typename O, typename M> PointerEventHandler(O* object, M method);
   void operator()(winrt::Windows::Foundation::IInspectable const& sender, winrt::Windows::UI::Xaml::Input::PointerRoutedEventArgs const& e) const;
};
public delegate void PointerEventHandler(Object sender, PointerRoutedEventArgs e)
Public Delegate Sub PointerEventHandler(sender As Object, e As PointerRoutedEventArgs)
Parameters
sender
Object Object

The object where the event handler is attached.

e
PointerRoutedEventArgs PointerRoutedEventArgs

Event data for the event.

Examples

The following code example shows scenario 2 from the Input sample. This code shows some usage patterns for direct manipulation using the PointerPressed, PointerReleased, PointerEntered, PointerExited, and PointerMoved events.
