JournalReader Class

Provides read access to a Windows Journal file, returning a stream containing an XML version of the file’s contents.

Namespace: Microsoft.Ink
Assembly: Microsoft.Ink (in microsoft.ink.dll)

public sealed class JournalReader
public final class JournalReader
public final class JournalReader
Not applicable.

The JournalReader class enables you to load a Journal document stream and to receive an XML stream representing the contents. You can reconstitute, display, and manipulate the ink.

The following Microsoft Visual Basic® .NET example of a handler for a Click event creates an instance of the JournalReader class and uses it to read an existing Journal file.

NoteNote:

The DisplayXml method called from this example is not shown. The specific implementation of such a method is dependent on your application's needs.

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) _
Handles Button1.Click
  Dim jntStream As Stream
  Dim xmlStream As Stream
  Dim jntReader As New Microsoft.Ink.JournalReader()
  Dim openFileDialog1 As New OpenFileDialog()

  ' Get the filename from the user by using a File Open dialog
  openFileDialog1.InitialDirectory = "C:\"
  openFileDialog1.Filter = _
    "Journal files (*.jnt)|*.jnt|All files (*.*)|*.*"
  openFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 1
  openFileDialog1.RestoreDirectory = True

  If openFileDialog1.ShowDialog = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
    Try
      jntStream = openFileDialog1.OpenFile()

      ' Read in the Journal file
      xmlStream = jntReader.ReadFromStream(jntStream)

      ' Show the results
      DisplayXml(xmlStream)
    Catch ex As Exception
      Debug.WriteLine(ex.Message)
    Finally
      ' Clean up
      xmlStream.Close()
      jntStream.Close()
    End Try
  End If
End Sub

The following C# example of a handler for a Click event creates an instance of the JournalReader class and uses it to read an existing Journal file.

private void btnLoad_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
