Property Value

Microsoft.Ink.DrawingAttributes. The default DrawingAttributes object, which specifies the drawing attributes that are used when drawing and displaying ink.

This property is read/write. This property has no default value.

Remarks

The drawing attributes specified with this property are the attributes that are assigned to a new cursor.

The default drawing attributes are as follows:

DrawingAttributes Property Description
AntiAliased true
Color Black Leave Site
FitToCurve false
Height 1 (in ink space units)
IgnorePressure false
PenTip Ball
RasterOperation CopyPen
Transparency 0 (totally opaque)
Width 53 (in ink space units)

To set different attributes on a new cursor, use the DrawingAttributes property of the Cursor object.

To change the drawing attributes of a single stroke, use the DrawingAttributes property of the Stroke object. To change the drawing attributes of a collection of strokes, call the ModifyDrawingAttributes method of the Strokes collection.

Note: The DefaultDrawingAttributes property contains the drawing attributes that all cursors use unless they set their own DrawingAttributes property. For example, a new Cursor object uses DefaultDrawingAttributes, and an old Cursor object on which the DefaultDrawingAttributes is set to null also uses DefaultDrawingAttributes.

Examples

// Set the initial Color attribute to Black
