InkCollector.CursorInRange Event

InkCollector.CursorInRange Event

Occurs when a cursor enters the physical detection range (proximity) of the tablet context.

Definition

Visual Basic .NET Public Event CursorInRange As InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventHandler
C# public event InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventHandler CursorInRange;
Managed C++ public: __event InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventHandler CursorInRange;

Remarks

The event handler receives an argument of type InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventArgs that contains data about this event.

When you create an InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. The default event interest is on.

The CursorInRange event is fired even when in select or erase mode, not just when in ink mode. This requires that you monitor the editing mode (which you are responsible for setting) and be aware of the mode before interpreting the event. The advantage of this requirement is greater freedom to innovate on the platform through greater awareness of platform events.

Examples

[C#]

This C# example demonstrates using several event handlers to display the state of the cursors, cursor buttons, and tablets. This simple application has a status bar with three panels (sbPanelCursor, sbPanelButton, and sbPanelTablet), where simple messages appear when events are received.
