These drawing attributes can be associated with a stroke or a cursor and specify settings such as color, width, and transparency.

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

Each InkCollector object, InkOverlay object, and InkPicture control can specify a different set of drawing attributes for the same cursor. Use the DrawingAttributes property of the Cursor object to get or set the drawing attributes of a cursor.
