Event Data

The ItemClick event's data class is ItemClickEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Item Gets the bar item that is currently being processed.
Link Gets the bar item link that is currently being processed.
LinkControl Gets the bar item link control that is currently being processed.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible Source adjustment by a parent class. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the RoutedEvent associated with this RoutedEventArgs instance. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
InvokeEventHandler(Delegate, Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a way to invoke event handlers in a type-specific way, which can increase efficiency over the base implementation. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OnSetSource(Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a notification callback entry point whenever the value of the Source property of an instance changes. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.


Handle the ItemClick or the BarManager.ItemClick event to respond to clicking the item’s link. If a command is assigned to the BarItem.Command property, it’s also invoked when the item is clicked, before the ItemClick events.

In code, you can invoke the item’s functionality via the BarItem.PerformClick method.
