How to Add Tapped Event to the Textbox in Windows 8 Application.

Over the forum discussion, some one asked an question “Tapped Event” is not occurring/firing in his application, so I have decided to write a quick code snippet for the same solution.
I did quick work around and added AddHandler() method. And it adds a routed event handler for a specified routed event.
See the following code snippet:
txtMyTextBox.AddHandler(TappedEvent, newTappedEventHandler(txtMyTextBox_Tapped), true);
void txtMyTextBox_Tapped(object sender, TappedRoutedEventArgs e)
            MessageDialog msgDialog = newMessageDialog(“Tapped Event occour”, “Windows 8 App”);
            //OK Button
            UICommand okBtn = newUICommand(“OK”);
            okBtn.Invoked = OkBtnClick;
            //Cancel Button
            UICommand cancelBtn = newUICommand(“Cancel”);
            cancelBtn.Invoked = CancelBtnClick;
            //Show message
Here is a completed source code.
Hope it will help, Happy Coding.
