Namespace:  Microsoft.StylusInput

public TabletPropertyDescriptionCollection GetTabletPropertyDescriptionCollection(
	int tabletContextId


Type: System.Int32

The tablet context identifier for the Tablet object for which you want the packet property descriptions.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.Ink.TabletPropertyDescriptionCollection
The TabletPropertyDescriptionCollection collection associated with a given tablet context identifier.

This method throws an exception when the RealTimeStylus is disabled or disposed.

This C# example is a snippet from the implementation of the IStylusAsyncPlugin interface's TabletAdded method. The form which implements the IStylusAsyncPlugin interface contains a TextBox object, theTextBox. The TabletAdded method displays information about the tablet that was added, calls the GetTabletContextIdFromTablet method to get the tablet's context identifier, and calls the GetTabletPropertyDescriptionCollection method to get the list of packet properties supported by the tablet.
