IStylusAsyncPlugin.StylusUp Method

Notifies the implementing plug-in that the user has raised the stylus off of the tablet digitizer surface.

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

void StylusUp(
	RealTimeStylus sender,
	StylusUpData data
)

Parameters

sender
Type: Microsoft.StylusInput.RealTimeStylus

The RealTimeStylus object that sent the notification.

data
Type: Microsoft.StylusInput.PluginData.StylusUpData

Information about the Stylus object associated with the notification.

You can modify the packet data by calling the inherited SetData method of the StylusUpData object contained in the data parameter.

NoteNote:

An ArgumentException exception is thrown by the SetData method if the length of the array in the value parameter is not equal to the value of the inherited PacketPropertyCount property.

This C# example is excerpted from the RealTimeStylus Plug-in Sample. The example shows how to restrict pen input to a specified rectangle.

public void StylusUp(RealTimeStylus sender,  StylusUpData data)
{
    ModifyPacketData(data);
}

private void ModifyPacketData(StylusDataBase data)
{
    // For each packet in the packet data, check whether
    // its x,y values fall outside of the specified rectangle.  
    // If so, replace them with the nearest point that still
    // falls within the rectangle.
    for (int i = 0; i < data.Count ; i += data.PacketPropertyCount)
    {
        // packet data always has x followed by y followed by the rest
        int x = data[i];
        int y = data[i+1];

        // Constrain points to the input rectangle
        x = Math.Max(x, rectangle.Left);
        x = Math.Min(x, rectangle.Right);
        y = Math.Max(y, rectangle.Top);
        y = Math.Min(y, rectangle.Bottom);

        // If necessary, modify the x,y packet data
        if (x != data[i])
        {
            data[i] = x;
        }
        
        if (y != data[i+1])
        {
            data[i+1] = y;
        } 
    }
}
