Create Event That is Fired When RepeatButtons are Released


Product RadNumericUpDown for WPF


How to receive only one notification, when the user releases the RepeatButton in a RadNumericUpDown.


Inherit the RadNumericUpDown control and add a handler for the MouseLeftButtonUp event of the RepeatButtons within the control. In that event handler, raise a custom RoutedEvent.

public class MyNumericUpDown : RadNumericUpDown 
    public MyNumericUpDown() 
        this.AddHandler(RepeatButton.MouseLeftButtonUpEvent, new MouseButtonEventHandler(IncreaseDecreaseButton_MouseLeftButtonUp), true); 
    private void IncreaseDecreaseButton_MouseLeftButtonUp(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e) 
    public static readonly RoutedEvent FinalValueChangedEvent = EventManager.RegisterRoutedEvent( 
    "FinalValueChanged", RoutingStrategy.Bubble, typeof(RoutedEventHandler), typeof(MyNumericUpDown)); 
    public event RoutedEventHandler FinalValueChanged 
        add { AddHandler(FinalValueChangedEvent, value); } 
        remove { RemoveHandler(FinalValueChangedEvent, value); } 
    void RaiseFinalValueChangedEvent() 
        RoutedEventArgs newEventArgs = new RoutedEventArgs(MyNumericUpDown.FinalValueChangedEvent); 
If the NoXaml dlls are used, the custom control's style should be based on the default one like so:

    <Style TargetType="local:MyNumericUpDown" BasedOn="{StaticResource RadNumericUpDownStyle}" />
