Assembly: Microsoft.Ink (in microsoft.ink.dll)
A recognizer has specific attributes and properties that allow it to perform recognition. The properties of a recognizer must be determined before recognition can occur. The types of properties that a recognizer supports determine the types of recognition it can perform. For instance, if a recognizer does not support cursive handwriting, it returns inaccurate results when a user writes in cursive.
A recognizer also has built-in functionality that automatically manages many aspects of handwriting. For instance, it determines the metrics for the lines on which strokes are drawn. You can return the line number of a stroke, but you never need to specify how those line metrics are determined because of the built-in functionality of the recognizer.
