Backstage - RecentDocumentsMenu - MouseOver Item

Hi Guys,

We would like to show a preview of a document in the RecentFilesMenu in the BackstageView. To do this we need to be able to hook to a MouseOver/MouseEnter event as the mouse passes over an Item in the RecentDocumentsMenu.

How does one do this?

You can access the DocumentReferences in the menu through the RecentDocumentMenu.Manager.Document collection.

You would need to attach to the MouseEnter event for each of these items, and then make sure to detach when no longer needed.

One way to implement this would be to inherit from the RecentDocumentMenu control, and in the PrepareContainerForItemOverride and ClearContainerForItemOverride, you could attach and detach the MouseEnter events on the containers, then raise an event of your own.

Please let us know if you have further questions.
