InkOverlay.EditingMode property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the object/control is in ink mode, deletion mode, or selecting/editing mode.

This property is read/write.


HRESULT put_EditingMode(
  [in]          InkOverlayEditingMode EditingMode

HRESULT get_EditingMode(
  [out, retval] InkOverlayEditingMode *EditingMode

Property value

A value that specifies whether the control is in ink mode, deletion mode, or selection/editing mode. The default value is IOEM_Ink, which specifies ink mode.


The InkOverlay and InkPicture objects generate an error if you change the EditingMode property while ink is being collected. To avoid this conflict, make sure the CollectingInk property is FALSE before changing the EditingMode property.

For more information about erasing ink, see Erasing Ink with the Pen.
