InkPicture.Selection Property

InkPicture.Selection Property

Gets or sets the Strokes collection that is currently selected inside the InkPicture control.

Definition

Visual Basic .NET Public Property Selection As Strokes
C# public Strokes Selection { get; set; }
Managed C++ public: __property Strokes* get_Selection();
public: __property void set_Selection(Strokes*);

Property Value

Microsoft.Ink.Strokes. The Strokes collection that is currently selected inside the InkPicture control. The default value is an empty Strokes collection.

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

Exceptions

COMException Leave Site:
ObjectDisposedException Leave Site:

Remarks

To get the bounding rectangle of the Strokes collection after it has been moved or resized, call the GetBoundingBox method of the Strokes collection returned by this property.

To get the bounding rectangle of of the Strokes collection before it was moved, handle the SelectionMoved event and get the OldSelectionBoundingRect property of the InkOverlaySelectionMovedEventArgs object.

To get the bounding rectangle of of the Strokes collection before it was resized, handle the SelectionResized event and get the OldSelectionBoundingRect property of the InkOverlaySelectionResizedEventArgs object.

Examples

[C#]

This C# example demonstrates use of the Selection property and using the HitTestSelection method. This application uses a check box, theCheckBox, to toggle an InkOverlay object between inking and selection modes, and uses the HitTestSelection results to change the color of the selected strokes from the Selection property when one of the selection sizing handles of the selection rectangle is clicked.
