UIElement.IsRightTapEnabled Property


Gets or sets a value that determines whether the RightTapped event can originate from that element.

 property bool IsRightTapEnabled { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
bool IsRightTapEnabled();

void IsRightTapEnabled(bool value);
public bool IsRightTapEnabled { get; set; }
var boolean = uIElement.isRightTapEnabled;
uIElement.isRightTapEnabled = boolean;
Public Property IsRightTapEnabled As Boolean
<uiElement IsRightTapEnabled="bool" />

Property Value



true if a RightTapped event can originate from this element; otherwise, false.


The default is true (event enabled). If you set to false, the UIElement will no longer source the RightTapped event. This might be desirable if a parent element such as a list control should instead process the action as a manipulation, or if you want to specify that only some child items emit a RightTapped event that a parent handles after bubbling.

Another reason to suppress gesture events is if you are handling pointer-level events and don't want gesture recognition logic to impact how the pointer events are fired. For example, if the gesture recognition engine has to test for Tapped, then it must delay firing a PointerMoved event for small movements, because the user might lift the touch point soon and the input event would normally be gesture-recognized as a tap.

You do not need a mouse device to produce a RightTapped event. A RightTapped event is generated if a touch event becomes a Holding event when the touch position remained in one place. Even though Holding and RightTapped might result from the same user touch action, the design guidance for what that event means to an app is different, as is the timing.
