You cannot use this managed class in XAML.

The following example demonstrates how to record the coordinates of the stylus, even if the stylus leaves the bounds of a TextBox. This example assumes that there is a TextBox called textBox1, and that the StylusDown, StylusUp, and StylusMove events are connected to the event handlers.

void textbox1_StylusDown(object sender, StylusDownEventArgs e)
{
    Stylus.Capture(textbox1);
}

void textbox1_StylusMove(object sender, StylusEventArgs e)
{
    Point pos = e.GetPosition(textbox1);
    textbox1.AppendText("X: " + pos.X + " Y: " + pos.Y + "\n");
}

void textbox1_StylusUp(object sender, StylusEventArgs e)
{
    Stylus.Capture(textbox1, CaptureMode.None);
}
