Occurs when the mouse pointer is over a View and a mouse button is pressed.
[DXCategory("Mouse")] public event MouseEventHandler MouseDown
<DXCategory("Mouse")> Public Event MouseDown As MouseEventHandler
The MouseDown event's data class is MouseEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:
|Button||Gets which mouse button was pressed.|
|Clicks||Gets the number of times the mouse button was pressed and released.|
|Delta||Gets a signed count of the number of detents the mouse wheel has rotated, multiplied by the WHEEL_DELTA constant. A detent is one notch of the mouse wheel.|
|Location||Gets the location of the mouse during the generating mouse event.|
|X||Gets the x-coordinate of the mouse during the generating mouse event.|
|Y||Gets the y-coordinate of the mouse during the generating mouse event.|
If you handle the MouseDown event for a detail View, the event sender identifies the clone that has actually raised the event.
A common practice of handling the MouseDown event is to perform specific actions in response to pressing a specific View element. Refer to the Hit Information help topic for information on how to identify the element located under the mouse pointer.
