Any way to attach a command to the PreviewMouseDown event of a ListViewItem?

05 Aug 2019, 21:42

I have a <ListView> which I can attach a command to the PreviewMouseDown event, and that works well.

But, because it doesn't provide the EventArgs, I can't see which ListViewItem was clicked.

Is there a way to attach this same event but to the ListViewItem itself? I've tried putting it into the ControlTemplate and the Style but haven't been able to get either working.
        <ListView
                SelectionMode="Single"
                Style="{StaticResource FileManagerListViewStyle}"
                ItemContainerStyle="{StaticResource FileManagerListViewItemStyle}"                    
                ItemsSource="{Binding FileManagerCollectionView.FileManagerCollectionView}">
            <i:Interaction.Triggers>
                <i:EventTrigger RoutedEvent="PreviewMouseDown">
                    <i:InvokeCommandAction Command="{Binding ListViewDownCommand}"/>
                </i:EventTrigger>
            </i:Interaction.Triggers>
            ...
I'm not sure how to do this in WPF either, but I've seen some work-around which I don't think can be done in Noesis.

Thanks!

We implemented an extension in Noesis to define interactivity triggers/behaviors in styles, and you can use that in ListViewItem style like this:
<Grid
    xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    xmlns:i="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/2010/interactivity"
    xmlns:noesis="clr-namespace:NoesisGUIExtensions;assembly=Noesis.GUI.Extensions">
      
  <Grid.Resources>
    <Style x:Key="FileManagerListViewItemStyle" TargetType="ListViewItem">
      ...
      <Setter Property="noesis:StyleInteraction.Triggers">
        <Setter.Value>
          <noesis:StyleTriggerCollection>
            <i:EventTrigger EventName="PreviewMouseDown">
              <i:InvokeCommandAction
                Command="{Binding DataContext.ListViewDownCommand, RelativeSource={RelativeSource AncestorType={x:Type ListView}}}"
                CommandParameter="{Binding}"/>
            </i:EventTrigger>
          </noesis:StyleTriggerCollection>
        </Setter.Value>
      </Setter>
    </Style>
  </Grid.Resources>
  ...
</Grid>
This way you will receive in the command parameter the item associated with the mouse down event. Does this work for you?

That is fantastic!... but, it looks like Noesis.GUI.Extensions requires some blend DLLs which are full .NET only right now?

Looks like Microsoft open sourced those libraries here:
https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/o ... s-for-wpf/

And this unmerged pull request adds .NET core 3.0 support:
https://github.com/microsoft/XamlBehaviorsWpf/pull/20

Think that will be cross-platform when merged or just be .NET core 3.0 on Windows only?

Noesis.GUI.Extensions NuGet is only required for WPF Blend editing.
Those classes are already exposed in the cross-platform Noesis.App NuGet, so it will correctly work in your .NET Core 3.0 project.

Understood, thank you. I have a dozen places in the code where this would be very helpful.
