Mouse.Capture Method (IInputElement, CaptureMode)
Captures mouse input to the specified element using the specified CaptureMode.
Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
- Type: System.Windows.IInputElement
The element to capture the mouse.
- Type: System.Windows.Input.CaptureMode
The capture policy to use.
Return ValueType: System.Boolean
true if the element was able to capture the mouse; otherwise, false.
When an element captures the mouse, it receives mouse input whether the cursor is within its borders.
To release mouse capture, call Capture passing a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) as the element to capture.
If the mouse is captured when a MouseDown or MouseUp event is raised and the input is not going to the element underneath the mouse, PreviewMouseDownOutsideCapturedElement and PreviewMouseUpOutsideCapturedElement are raised first. This enables the captured element a chance to release capture before the MouseDown and MouseUp events are routed.
