Remarks

Each cursor corresponds to the tip of a pen or other ink input device.

The cursors in this collection are local to an InkOverlay object.

Any new cursors that the InkOverlay object encounters are added to the returned Cursors collection, although the cursors are not necessarily returned in the order in which the InkOverlay object encounters them.

When you enable a mouse as an input device on the InkOverlay object (when the useMouseForInput parameter of the SetAllTabletsMode method is true), the mouse is added to the Cursors collection after the InkOverlay encounters any other cursor, such as a pen. This is because the pen also acts like a mouse.

Note: The CursorInRange event is received for the mouse cursor after any other cursor, such as when a pen draws a stroke (which fires the Stroke event).

The Cursors collection is cleared (count set to 0, containing no objects) when:

Examples

[C#]

This C# example returns a report on the attributes of all of the cursors seen by the InkOverlay object passed in as a parameter.


using Microsoft.Ink;
//. . .
public string CursorReport(InkOverlay theInkOverlay)
{
    string theReport = "The InkOverlay has encountered the following cursors so far:" + Environment.NewLine;
    // Get the Cursors collection from the InkOverlay
    Microsoft.Ink.Cursors theCursors = theInkOverlay.Cursors;
    // Prevent changes to the collection while we iterate over it.
    lock( theCursors.SyncRoot )
    {
        theReport += "Count of cursors: " + theCursors.Count + Environment.NewLine + Environment.NewLine ;
        foreach (Microsoft.Ink.Cursor cursor in theCursors)
        {
            theReport += "Cursor Name: " + cursor.Name + Environment.NewLine;
            theReport += "Cursor ToString: " + cursor.ToString() + Environment.NewLine;
            theReport += "Tablet Name: " + cursor.Tablet.Name  + Environment.NewLine;
            theReport += "Cursor Id: " + cursor.Id.ToString()  + Environment.NewLine;
            theReport += "Cursor is inverted: " + cursor.Inverted.ToString()  + Environment.NewLine;
            theReport += "Cursor Buttons:" + Environment.NewLine;
            foreach (CursorButton button in cursor.Buttons)
            {
                CursorButtonState theState = button.State;
