InkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes Property

Gets or sets the default DrawingAttributes object, which specifies the drawing attributes that are used when drawing and displaying ink.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Ink
Assembly:  Microsoft.Ink (in Microsoft.Ink.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public DrawingAttributes DefaultDrawingAttributes { get; set; }

Property Value

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

The DrawingAttributes 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

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.

NoteNote:

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.

This C# example sets some of the default drawing attributes of an InkOverlay.

using Microsoft.Ink;
//. . .
InkOverlay theInkOverlay = new InkOverlay();

// Set the initial Width attribute to thin
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Width = 30;

// Set the initial Color attribute to Black
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Color = Color.Black;

// Set the initial RasterOperation attribute to CopyPen
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.RasterOperation = RasterOperation.CopyPen;

// Set the initial Transparency attribute to opaque (0)
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Transparency = 0;

// Set the initial AntiAliased attribute to true
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.AntiAliased = true;

This Microsoft Visual Basic .NET example sets some of the default drawing attributes of an InkOverlay.

Imports Microsoft.Ink
'. . .
Dim theInkOverlay As New InkOverlay()

'Set the initial Width attribute to thin
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Width = 30

'Set the initial Color attribute to Black
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Color = Color.Black

'Set the initial RasterOperation attribute to CopyPen
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.RasterOperation = RasterOperation.CopyPen

'Set the initial Transparency attribute to opaque (0)
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Transparency = 0

'Set the initial AntiAliased attribute to true
theInkOverlay.DefaultDrawingAttributes.AntiAliased = True
