When an element captures the mouse, it receives mouse input whether or not the cursor is within its borders.

If a CaptureMode is not specified, the default CaptureMode is Element.

To release mouse capture, call Capture passing null 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.
