Releases a pointer captured by an element (using the setPointerCapture method).
Note As of Internet Explorer 11, the Microsoft vendor prefixed version of this method (msReleasePointerCapture) is no longer supported and may be removed in a future release. Instead, use the non-prefixed lowercase name, releasePointerCapture, which is better for standards compliance and future compatibility.
- pointerId [in]
Identifier of the pointer to be released.
This method does not return a value.
Starting with IE11, an element must have capture on a pointer (by using setPointerCapture) in order to be able to release capture on that particular pointer. In Internet Explorer 10, a call to releasePointerCapture on an element releases capture for the specified pointer from whichever element currently has capture.
