Public Property IsPressed As Boolean

Property Value


true if the ButtonBase is activated; otherwise false. The default is false.



This example shows how to use the IsPressed property in a trigger style.

<Style x:Key="Triggers" TargetType="Button">
    <Trigger Property="IsMouseOver" Value="true">
      <Setter Property = "Background" Value="Red"/>
    <Trigger Property="IsPressed" Value="true">
      <Setter Property = "Foreground" Value="Green"/>


IsPressed is the state of a button that indicates the left mouse button or SPACEBAR is pressed over the button. When IsPressed is true, the control captures the mouse. As a result, the control will raise mouse events such as MouseEnter and IsMouseDirectlyOverChanged. Note that using the AccessText or ENTER does not change IsPressed or capture the mouse, but is does raise the Click event.

Starting with the .NET Framework version 3.0 Service Pack 1, IsPressed has a protected setter. To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework version 3.5. For more information, see Versions and Dependencies.
