The DrawingAttributes class allows you to specify drawing attributes, such as height, width, color, and outline color. To apply the drawing attributes to a stroke, you set the Stroke.DrawingAttributes property on a Stroke to a DrawingAttributes object.

For a list of default property values for an instance of the DrawingAttributes class, see the DrawingAttributes constructor.

The following code example simulates three different stylus types (pen, marker, and highlighter) by setting the Height, Width, Color, and OutlineColor properties of a DrawingAttributes object. The example creates a DrawingAttributes object and then applies it to a Stroke object. When the user clicks a stylus type button, the example updates the DrawingAttributes properties. The BtEraser_Click method clears all the strokes from the InkPresenter control.

Run this sample



//A new stroke object named MyStroke is created. MyStroke is added to the StrokeCollection of the InkPresenter named MyIP
private void MyIP_MouseLeftButtonDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    MyIP.CaptureMouse();
    StylusPointCollection MyStylusPointCollection = new StylusPointCollection();
    MyStylusPointCollection.Add(e.StylusDevice.GetStylusPoints(MyIP));
    MyStroke = new Stroke(MyStylusPointCollection);
    MyStroke.DrawingAttributes = CloneDrawingAttributes(MyDA);
    MyIP.Strokes.Add(MyStroke);
}

//StylusPoint objects are collected from the MouseEventArgs and added to MyStroke
private void MyIP_MouseMove(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    if (MyStroke != null)
        MyStroke.StylusPoints.Add(e.StylusDevice.GetStylusPoints(MyIP));
}

//MyStroke is completed
private void MyIP_LostMouseCapture(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
{
    MyStroke = null;
}

private DrawingAttributes CloneDrawingAttributes(DrawingAttributes attributes)
{
    if (attributes == null)
        return attributes;

    DrawingAttributes cloneAttribute = new DrawingAttributes();
    cloneAttribute.Color = attributes.Color;
    cloneAttribute.Height = attributes.Height;
    cloneAttribute.OutlineColor = attributes.OutlineColor;
    cloneAttribute.Width = attributes.Width;
    return cloneAttribute;
}

//Set drawing attributes to simulate a pen
private void BtPen_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    MyDA.Width = 1;
    MyDA.Height = Double.Epsilon - 1;
    MyDA.Color = Colors.Black;
    MyDA.OutlineColor = Colors.Black;
}

//Set drawing attributes to simulate a marker
private void BtMarker_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    MyDA.Width = 10;
    MyDA.Height = 4;
    MyDA.Color = Colors.Blue;
    MyDA.OutlineColor = Colors.Blue;
}

//Set drawing attributes to simulate a highlighter
private void BtHighlighter_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    MyDA.Width = 25;
    MyDA.Height = 5;
    MyDA.Color = Colors.Yellow;
    MyDA.OutlineColor = Colors.Yellow;
}

//Clear the strokes from the inkpresenter control
private void BtEraser_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    MyIP.Strokes.Clear();
}

private void SetBoundary()
{
    RectangleGeometry MyRectangleGeometry = new RectangleGeometry();
    MyRectangleGeometry.Rect = new Rect(0, 0, MyIP.ActualHeight, MyIP.ActualWidth);
    MyIP.Clip = MyRectangleGeometry;
}
