IStylusSyncPlugin.StylusDown Method

Informs the implementing plug-in that the stylus has touched the tablet digitizer surface.

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

void StylusDown(
	RealTimeStylus sender,
	StylusDownData data
)

Parameters

sender
Type: Microsoft.StylusInput.RealTimeStylus

The RealTimeStylus object that sent the notification.

data
Type: Microsoft.StylusInput.PluginData.StylusDownData

Information about the Stylus object associated with the notification.

You can modify the packet data by calling the inherited SetData method of the StylusDownData 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 equal to the value of the inherited PacketPropertyCount property.

This C# example, adapted from the RealTimeStylus Plug-in Sample, shows an implementation of StylusDown. The example draws a purple circle around the point where the stylus touches the digitizer. The myGraphics variable holds an internal reference to a Graphics object for the control the RealTimeStylus is attached to.

public void StylusDown(RealTimeStylus sender, StylusDownData data) 
{
    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.Purple, point.X - 2, point.Y - 2, 4, 4);
    }
}

This Microsoft Visual Basic .NET example, adapted from the RealTimeStylus Plug-in Sample, shows an implementation of StylusDown. The example draws a purple circle around the point where the stylus touches the digitizer. The myGraphics variable holds an internal reference to a Graphics object for the control the RealTimeStylus is attached to.

Public Sub StylusDown(ByVal sender As RealTimeStylus, ByVal data As StylusDownData) _
 Implements IStylusSyncPlugin.StylusDown
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To data.Count - data.PacketPropertyCount Step data.PacketPropertyCount
        ' Packet data always has x followed by y followed by the rest
        Dim point As New Point(data(i), data((i + 1)))

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

        ' Draw a circle corresponding to the packet
        myGraphics.DrawEllipse(Pens.Purple, point.X - 2, point.Y - 2, 4, 4)
    Next i
End Sub 'StylusDown
