StylusPointProperty Class

Represents a property stored in a StylusPoint.

Namespace: System.Windows.Input
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)
XML Namespace:

public class StylusPointProperty
public class StylusPointProperty
public class StylusPointProperty
You cannot use this managed class in XAML.

A StylusPointProperty represents properties in StylusPoint such as the (x, y) coordinates, pressure, and so on. You can inherit from the StylusPointProperty class to customize the information stored for each property. The Windows Presentation Framework ships with the StylusPointPropertyInfo class that inherits from StylusPointProperty and specifies the minimum and maximum values, resolution, and unit used for each property.

The following example creates the StylusPointDescription object from a StylusPointCollection and gets the information for each StylusPointPropertyInfo in the StylusPointDescription.

    private void WriteDescriptionInfo(StylusPointCollection points)
        StylusPointDescription pointsDescription = points.Description;
        ReadOnlyCollection<StylusPointPropertyInfo> properties = 

        StringWriter descriptionStringWriter = new StringWriter();
        descriptionStringWriter.Write("Property Count:{0}", pointsDescription.PropertyCount.ToString());
        foreach (StylusPointPropertyInfo property in properties)
            // GetStylusPointPropertyName is defined below and returns the
            // name of the property.
            descriptionStringWriter.Write("name = {0}", GetStylusPointPropertyName(property).ToString());
            descriptionStringWriter.WriteLine("  Guid = {0}", property.Id.ToString());
            descriptionStringWriter.Write("  IsButton = {0}", property.IsButton.ToString());
            descriptionStringWriter.Write("  Min = {0}", property.Minimum.ToString());
            descriptionStringWriter.Write("  Max = {0}", property.Maximum.ToString());
            descriptionStringWriter.Write("  Unit = {0}", property.Unit.ToString());
            descriptionStringWriter.WriteLine("  Res {0}", property.Resolution.ToString());

        descriptionOutput.Text = descriptionStringWriter.ToString();


    // Use reflection to get the name of currentProperty.
    private string GetStylusPointPropertyName(StylusPointProperty currentProperty)
        Guid guid = currentProperty.Id;

        // Iterate through the StylusPointProperties to find the StylusPointProperty
        // that matches currentProperty, then return the name.
        foreach (FieldInfo theFieldInfo
            in typeof(StylusPointProperties).GetFields())
            StylusPointProperty property = (StylusPointProperty) theFieldInfo.GetValue(currentProperty);
            if (property.Id == guid)
                return theFieldInfo.Name;
        return "Not found";
