RecognizerContext.RecognitionWithAlternates Event

Occurs when the RecognizerContext object has generated results after calling the BackgroundRecognizeWithAlternates method.

Namespace: Microsoft.Ink
Assembly: Microsoft.Ink (in microsoft.ink.dll)

public event RecognizerContextRecognitionWithAlternatesEventHandler RecognitionWithAlternates
/** @event */
public void add_RecognitionWithAlternates (RecognizerContextRecognitionWithAlternatesEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_RecognitionWithAlternates (RecognizerContextRecognitionWithAlternatesEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

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

When you create a RecognizerContextRecognitionWithAlternatesEventHandler 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.

The behavior of the application programming interface (API) is unpredictable if you try to gain access to the original RecognizerContext object from the RecognitionWithAlternates event handler. Do not attempt to do this. Instead, if you need to do this, create a flag and set it in the Recognition event handler. Then you can poll that flag to determine when to change the RecognizerContext properties outside of the event handler.

This C# example calls the BackgroundRecognizeWithAlternates method as the InkCollector object, theInkCollector, collects each Stroke object. This causes a RecognitionWithAlternates event. In the RecognitionWithAlternates event handler, the example displays the recognition results along with all of the alternates—in descending order of confidence—in a list box, listAlternates, as they are generated.
