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.


The DiagramControl fires the QueryItemsAction event to configure the appearance of visual elements such as adorners and the cursor type. It is not recommended to use the QueryItemsAction event to track the user actions.

The event’s Items property returns the collection of queried diagram items. The Action property returns the queried action.

Set the Allow property to false to restrict the action.
