[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
The follow sample demonstrates how to make an object capture and uncapture the mouse and how this affects mouse related events from other objects in the application.
When an object captures the mouse, all mouse related events are treated as if the object with mouse capture perform the event, even if the mouse pointer is over another object.
This sample demonstrates a specific feature of the Windows Presentation Foundation and, consequently, does not follow application development best practices.
