UIElement.ReleasePointerCaptures Method

Definition

Releases all pointer captures held by this element.

public:
 virtual void ReleasePointerCaptures() = ReleasePointerCaptures;
void ReleasePointerCaptures();
public void ReleasePointerCaptures();
Public Sub ReleasePointerCaptures ()

Remarks

Because there are input scenarios such as manipulations that involve more than one pointer point, the Windows Runtime enables capturing more than one pointer at a time. Calling ReleasePointerCapture removes a specific Pointer from the collection as identified by its ID, whereas ReleasePointerCaptures clears the entire collection.

User action that invalidates pointer capture such as releasing from a pointer point also changes capture state. For more info, see Mouse interactions and Handle pointer input.

The PointerCaptures property exposes a view of which pointer points are currently captured by the UIElement.
