StylusDevice.GetStylusPoints Method (IInputElement, StylusPointDescription)

Returns a StylusPointCollection that contains StylusPoint objects collected from the stylus. Uses the specified StylusPointDescription.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Input
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public StylusPointCollection GetStylusPoints(
	IInputElement relativeTo,
	StylusPointDescription subsetToReformatTo


Type: System.Windows.IInputElement

The IInputElement to which the (x y) coordinates in the StylusPointCollection are mapped.

Type: System.Windows.Input.StylusPointDescription

The StylusPointDescription to be used by the StylusPointCollection.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Input.StylusPointCollection
A StylusPointCollection that contains StylusPoint objects collected from the stylus.


relativeTo is neither UIElement or FrameworkContentElement.

subsetToReformatTo must be compatible with the Description property of the StylusPointCollection used by the GetStylusPoints(IInputElement) method. Use the GetCommonDescription method to get a StylusPointDescription before calling the GetStylusPoints(IInputElement, StylusPointDescription) method.

The following example demonstrates how to get StylusPoint objects from the current StylusDevice.

StylusDevice currentStylus = Stylus.CurrentStylusDevice;
StylusPointDescription description1 =
      new StylusPointDescription(new StylusPointPropertyInfo[]
                        new StylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperties.X),
                        new StylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperties.Y),
                        new StylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperties.NormalPressure),
                        new StylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperties.XTiltOrientation),
                        new StylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperties.YTiltOrientation),
                        new StylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperties.BarrelButton)

StylusPointDescription description2 = currentStylus.GetStylusPoints(inkCanvas1).Description;

StylusPointDescription description3 = 
    StylusPointDescription.GetCommonDescription(description1, description2);

StylusPointCollection points = currentStylus.GetStylusPoints(inkCanvas1, description3);
