Examples

The following JavaScript example demonstrates how to display the type of device that was used to create the current StylusPoint.

JavaScript
// Capture mouse movement when the left button is pressed and create the stroke
function InkPresenterMouseDown(sender,args)
{
  // Display the Type of input device in a TextBlock
  device.Text = args.GetStylusInfo().deviceType;
  
  inkPresenter.CaptureMouse();
  newStroke = agCtrl.content.createFromXaml('<Stroke/>');
  
  newStroke.StylusPoints.AddStylusPoints(args.GetStylusPoints(inkPresenter));
  inkPresenter.Strokes.Add(newStroke);
}
