IStylusSyncPlugin::Packets Method

Informs the object implementing the IStylusSyncPlugin interface that the stylus is moving on the digitizer surface.

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

void Packets(
	RealTimeStylus^ sender, 
	PacketsData^ data
)

Parameters

sender
Type: Microsoft.StylusInput::RealTimeStylus

The RealTimeStylus object that called this method.

data
Type: Microsoft.StylusInput.PluginData::PacketsData

Information about the stylus movement.

You can modify the packet data by calling the inherited SetData method of the PacketsData object contained in the data parameter.

NoteNote:

An ArgumentException exception is thrown by the SetData method if the length of the array in the value parameter is not a multiple of the value of the inherited PacketPropertyCount property.

You can cancel the packets by calling the SetData method with the value parameter set to null (Nothing in Microsoft Visual Basic .NET).

This C# example is excerpted from the RealTimeStylus Plug-in Sample. The example implements a Packets method that draws a small circle in the location of each new packet received.

public void Packets(RealTimeStylus sender,  PacketsData data)
{           
  // For each new packet received, extract the x,y data
  // and draw a small circle around the result.
  for (int i = 0; i < data.Count ; i += data.PacketPropertyCount)
  {
    // Packet data always has x followed by y followed by the rest
    Point point = new Point(data[i], data[i+1]);

    // Since the packet data is in Ink Space coordinates, we need to convert to Pixels...
    point.X = (int)Math.Round((float)point.X * (float)myGraphics.DpiX/2540.0F);
    point.Y = (int)Math.Round((float)point.Y * (float)myGraphics.DpiY/2540.0F);

    // Draw a circle corresponding to the packet
    myGraphics.DrawEllipse(Pens.Green, point.X - 2, point.Y - 2, 4, 4);
  }
}

This Visual Basic .NET example is excerpted from the RealTimeStylus Plug-in Sample. The example implements a Packets method that draws a small circle in the location of each new packet received.
