#585 – Tunneling Events Propagate Down the Logical Tree

In WPF, bubbling events originate in the control where the event occurred and then propagate up the logical or visual tree.  By contrast, tunneling events will be seen first by controls at the top of the hierarchy and then propagate down until they reach the control where the event originated.
