UIElement.ReleaseMouseCapture Method

Releases the mouse capture, if this element held the capture.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

Public Sub ReleaseMouseCapture



If this element did not hold the capture, calling this method has no effect. Consider checking the value of IsMouseCaptured before you call this method.

The following example is the parallel to the example given for CaptureMouse: it handles mouse button up to release mouse capture and re-enable moving the mouse.

		Private Sub MouseDownHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
			If Not Enabled Then
			End If
			e.Handled = True

			If Keyboard.IsKeyDown(Key.F1) = True Then
			End If

			Dim el As UIElement = CType(sender, UIElement)
			_point = e.MouseDevice.GetPosition(el)
			' Initialize the center of rotation to the lookatpoint
			If Not _centered Then
				Dim camera As ProjectionCamera = CType(_slaves(0).Camera, ProjectionCamera)
				_center = camera.LookDirection
				_centered = True
			End If

			_scaling = (e.MiddleButton = MouseButtonState.Pressed)

			If Keyboard.IsKeyDown(Key.Space) = False Then
				_rotating = True
				_rotating = False
			End If

		End Sub

		Private Sub MouseUpHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)
			If Not _enabled Then
			End If
			e.Handled = True

			' Stuff the current initial + delta into initial so when we next move we
			' start at the right place.
			If _rotating = True Then
				_rotation = _rotationDelta * _rotation
				_translate += _translateDelta
				_translateDelta.X = 0
				_translateDelta.Y = 0
			End If

			'_scale = _scaleDelta * _scale
			Dim el As UIElement = CType(sender, UIElement)
		End Sub
