DynamicRenderer.ClipRectangle Property

Gets or sets the Rectangle structure in which to paint the dynamically rendered strokes.

Namespace:  Microsoft.StylusInput
Assembly:  Microsoft.Ink (in Microsoft.Ink.dll)

public Rectangle ClipRectangle { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Drawing.Rectangle
The rectangle, in pixels, in which to paint the dynamically rendered strokes.

The ClipRectangle property is set immediately and applies to the stroke that is being drawn, unlike the DrawingAttributes property, which applies to the next stroke drawn. This allows the clip rectangle to grow as the stroke is drawn.

When calling the DynamicRenderer object's Refresh method from within a Paint event handler, set the DynamicRenderer object's ClipRectangle property to the PaintEventArgs object's ClipRectangle property.

NoteNote:

Currently, if the ClipRectangle is expanded in mid-stroke, then a DynamicRenderer.Refresh call is required in order to display the new ink. This Refresh call must be made every time new ink appears in a new area; however, doing so may cause performance problems when inking in the new area.

This C# example expands a form horizontally if a stroke gets near the right border of the window. If a packet is received that is within 100 pixels of the right border, then the window expands by 100 pixels. Note the need to call DynamicRenderer.Refresh if the packet is in the newly-expanded region, and the need to keep track of that region by using the oldWidth field.
