DrawingAttributes.IsHighlighter Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the Stroke looks like a highlighter.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Ink
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 bool IsHighlighter { get; set; }
This property is not typically used in XAML.

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true to render the Stroke as a highlighter; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When the IsHighlighter property is set to true, the Stroke is slightly transparent, which allows the strokes underneath to appear.

The following example demonstrates how to set the IsHighlighter property. The example assumes that your application has an InkCanvas called inkCanvas1, and two DrawingAttributes objects called inkDA and highlighterDA. For the complete example, see the DrawingAttributes class overview.

// Set up the DrawingAttributes for the pen.
inkDA = new DrawingAttributes();
inkDA.Color = Colors.SpringGreen;
inkDA.Height = 5;
inkDA.Width = 5;
inkDA.FitToCurve = false;
inkDA.StylusTipTransform = new Matrix(1, 0, 0, 5, 0, 0);

// Set up the DrawingAttributes for the highlighter.
highlighterDA = new DrawingAttributes();
highlighterDA.Color = Colors.Orchid;
highlighterDA.IsHighlighter = true;
highlighterDA.IgnorePressure = true;
highlighterDA.StylusTip = StylusTip.Rectangle;
highlighterDA.Height = 30;
highlighterDA.Width = 10;

inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = inkDA;
