Assembly: Microsoft.Ink (in Microsoft.Ink.dll)
A button on a pen tip is down when the user lowers the pen to the digitizer and starts tracing a stroke. A button on a barrel is down when the button is pressed.
The event handler receives an argument of type InkCollectorCursorButtonDownEventArgs containing data about this event.
When you create an InkCollectorCursorButtonDownEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that handles the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For performance reasons, the default event interest is off but is turned on automatically if you add an event handler.
When you press the right mouse button, you receive two events—one for right button pressed and one for left button pressed.
The following example shows how you can subscribe to the CursorInRange event, event, and the CursorButtonUp event in order to have the ink pointer (when inking with the mouse) be displayed using a different color than the ink itself.
When the CursorInRange event fires, a check is made to see if this is the first time that the InkOverlay object has come in contact with this particular Cursor object. If so, the DrawingAttributes property is assigned with a clone of the DefaultDrawingAttributes property. This ensures that subsequent access to the DrawingAttributes property does not throw a null reference exception. If the mouse is being used, the ink color is set to red.
Private Sub mInkObject_CursorInRange(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As InkCollectorCursorInRangeEventArgs) Const MOUSE_CURSOR_ID As Integer = 1 If e.NewCursor Then ' mInkObject can be InkCollector, InkOverlay, or InkPicture e.Cursor.DrawingAttributes = mInkObject.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Clone() ' if this cursor is the mouse, we'll set color to red If (MOUSE_CURSOR_ID = e.Cursor.Id) Then e.Cursor.DrawingAttributes.Color = Color.Red End If End If End Sub
When the event fires, a check is made to see if the Cursor object supplied to the event is the mouse. If so, the Color property is to set to blue.
