Attempts to force capture of the mouse to this element.
Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
To be captured, an element must be enabled. Check whether IsEnabled is true before you call .
If calling returns true, then IsMouseCaptured is also true.
If calling returns true, then the GotMouseCapture and IsMouseCapturedChanged events are raised, with RoutedEventArgs.Source in the event data reported as the element where the method is called. If you force capture, you might interfere with existing captures—especially with captures that relate to drag-and-drop with the mouse.
To clear mouse capture from all elements, call Mouse.Capture with the element parameter provided as null.
