StrokeCollectionConverter Class

Converts a StrokeCollection to a string.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation
public class StrokeCollectionConverter : TypeConverter
<StrokeCollectionConverter .../>

The StrokeCollectionConverter converts a StrokeCollection to a string that represents the StrokeCollection in base-64, encoded Ink Serialized Format (ISF). It is useful to store ink data as base-64, encoded ISF when it is not possible to store raw byte data, such as in Web pages.

The following example demonstrates how to convert a base-64, encoded ISF string to a StrokeCollection. This assumes that there is an InkPresenter called presenter.

// The base-64 encoded string that contains ink data 
// in ink serialized format (ISF).
string strokesString =
    @"AOoFAxBIEEVqGwIAWf9GahsCAFn/GRQyCACAEAIAAABCMwgAgA"
