I have a grid that has 52 cells (4 rows, 13 columns).  There is an image in each cell.

I would like to set the same tap event for each of the 52 images.

<Image x:Name="imgClub1"
                Width ="28"
                Source="Images\C1Clip.png"
                Height="40"
                Grid.Row="0"
                Grid.Column="0" Stretch="None"
                Margin="0,0,28,0"
                Tag="C1Full"
                Tap="cmdClub1_Tap"
                Grid.ColumnSpan="2" VerticalAlignment="Top"
               />

            <Image x:Name="imgClub2"
                     Width ="28" Source="Images\C2Clip.png"
                     Height="40"
                     Grid.Row="0"
                     Grid.Column="1" Stretch="None"
                     Margin="0,0,0,0"
                     Tag="C2Full"
                     VerticalAlignment="Top"
                     Tap="cmdClub1_Tap"
                />

void cmdClub1_Tap(object sender,
                     System.Windows.Input.GestureEventArgs e)
        // Place selected image into imgHole
        {
            //string strImageName = TappedImage.Tag.ToString();
How do I determine the name of the tapped image?

Is there a Selected property for images?

Thanks,

Is this a Windows Phone app? If not what platform.

I can not find a Tap, Tap="cmdClub1_Tap", in the documentation.

This is a Windows Phone 8 app running on Windows 8.0 Pro.

Tap="cmdClub1_Tap" declares the Tap event. This is like the OnClick property that can be set in asp.net.

Debugging allows me to step through the void cmdClub1_Tap(object sender,
                     System.Windows.Input.GestureEventArgs e)
        // Place selected image into imgHole
        {

Hi Dovberman;

I have not played around with Windows Phone programming but looking at the documentation you should be able to do the following.

var theImage = e.OriginalSource as Image;

then you can read the Tag property of that Image by saying theImage.Tag

I hope that helps.

This would indicate that the Image source of the tapped image can be saved as an event property.  I will try that.

Phone programming exposes a lot of properties and events. This is an exciting new platform for me after spending 10 years developing web sites.

Yes this works,

void cmdClub1_Tap(object sender,
                     System.Windows.Input.GestureEventArgs e)
     
   // Place selected image into imgHole

            var imgTapped = e.OriginalSource as Image;  // The image that was tapped.
           
            imgHole1.Source = imgTapped.Source;    // Copies the tapped image

-----
All 52 images use the same event procedure, ( cmdClub1_Tap), To be renamed cmdClip_Tap.

This saves repeating a code block 51 times.
