UIElement3D.CaptureMouse Method

Attempts to force capture of the mouse to this element.

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

abstract CaptureMouse : unit -> bool  
override CaptureMouse : unit -> bool

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the mouse is successfully captured; otherwise, false.

Implements

IInputElement.CaptureMouse()

To be captured, an element must be enabled. Check whether IsEnabled is true before you call CaptureMouse.

If calling CaptureMouse returns true, then IsMouseCaptured is also true.

If calling CaptureMouse returns true, then the GotMouseCapture and IsMouseCapturedChanged events are raised, with RoutedEventArgs.Source in the event data reported as the element where the CaptureMouse 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 a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

CaptureMouse is introduced in the .NET Framework version 3.5. For more information, see .NET Framework Versions and Dependencies.
