InkOverlay.CursorButtonUp Event

Occurs when the InkOverlay object detects a CursorButton object that is up.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Ink
Assembly:  Microsoft.Ink (in Microsoft.Ink.dll)
public event InkCollectorCursorButtonUpEventHandler CursorButtonUp

A button on a pen tip is up when the user completes a stroke and lifts the pen from the digitizer. A button on a barrel is up when the button is not pressed.

The event handler receives an argument of type InkCollectorCursorButtonUpEventArgs containing data about this event.

When you create an InkCollectorCursorButtonUpEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that handles 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. For performance reasons, the default event interest is off but is turned on automatically if you add an event handler.

When you release the right mouse button, you receive two CursorButtonUp events—one for right button up and one for left button up.

The following example shows how you can subscribe to the CursorInRange event, CursorButtonDown event, and the CursorButtonUp event in order to have the ink pointer (when inking with the mouse) be displayed using a different color than the ink itself.

When the CursorInRange event fires, a check is made to see if this is the first time that the InkOverlay object has come in contact with this particular Cursor object. If so, the DrawingAttributes property is assigned with a clone of the DefaultDrawingAttributes property. This ensures that subsequent access to the DrawingAttributes property does not throw a null reference exception. If the mouse is being used, the ink color is set to red.

private void mInkObject_CursorInRange(object sender, InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventArgs e)
{
    const int MOUSE_CURSOR_ID = 1;

    if (e.NewCursor)
    {
        // mInkObject can be InkCollector, InkOverlay, or InkPicture
        e.Cursor.DrawingAttributes = mInkObject.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Clone();
        // if this cursor is the mouse, we'll set color to red 
        if (MOUSE_CURSOR_ID == e.Cursor.Id)
        {
            e.Cursor.DrawingAttributes.Color = Color.Red;
        }
    }
}

When the CursorButtonDown event fires, a check is made to see if the Cursor object supplied to the event is the mouse. If so, the Color property is to set to blue.

private void mInkObject_CursorButtonDown(object sender, InkCollectorCursorButtonDownEventArgs e)
{
    const int MOUSE_CURSOR_ID = 1;

    if (MOUSE_CURSOR_ID == e.Cursor.Id)
    {
        e.Cursor.DrawingAttributes.Color = Color.Blue;
    }

}

When the CursorButtonUp event fires, a check is made to see if the Cursor object supplied to the event is the mouse. If so, the Color property is to set back to red.

private void mInkObject_CursorButtonUp(object sender, InkCollectorCursorButtonUpEventArgs e)
{
    const int MOUSE_CURSOR_ID = 1;

    if (MOUSE_CURSOR_ID == e.Cursor.Id)
    {
        e.Cursor.DrawingAttributes.Color = Color.Red;
    }
}
