UIElementLostStylusCapture Event

Occurs when this element loses stylus capture.

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

public event StylusEventHandler LostStylusCapture
event StylusEventHandler^ LostStylusCapture {
	virtual void add(StylusEventHandler^ value) sealed;
	virtual void remove(StylusEventHandler^ value) sealed;
abstract LostStylusCapture : IEvent<StylusEventHandler,
override LostStylusCapture : IEvent<StylusEventHandler,
Public Event LostStylusCapture As StylusEventHandler

When an element captures the stylus, it receives stylus input even if the pointer is outside its bounds. The stylus is typically captured only during drag-and-drop operations.

Because this event uses bubbling routing, the element that loses focus might be a child element instead of the element where the event handler is actually attached. Check the in the event data to determine the actual element that lost focus.

This event creates an alias for the StylusLostStylusCapture attached event for this class, so that LostStylusCapture is part of the class members list when UIElement is inherited as a base element. Event handlers that are attached to the LostStylusCapture event are attached to the underlying StylusLostStylusCapture attached event and receive the same event data instance.
