IInkTablet interface

Represents the digitizer device of Tablet PC that receives tablet device messages or events.

Members

The IInkTablet interface inherits from the IUnknown interface. IInkTablet also has these types of members:

Methods

The IInkTablet interface has these methods.

MethodDescription
GetPropertyMetrics

Returns the metrics data for a known property.

IsPacketPropertySupported

Determines whether a property of a tablet device, identified with a globally unique identifier (GUID), is supported.

 

Properties

The IInkTablet interface has these properties.

PropertyDescription

HardwareCapabilities

Gets a value from the TabletHardwareCapabilities enumeration that defines the hardware capabilities of the IInkTablet object.

MaximumInputRectangle

Gets the maximum input rectangle, in tablet device coordinates that the IInkTablet object supports.

Name

Gets the name of the IInkTablet object.

PlugAndPlayID

Gets a string representation of the Plug and Play identifier of the IInkTablet object.

 

Remarks

You can use the IInkTablet object to determine the hardware capabilities of the tablet device. A Tablet PC may have more than one digitizer attached in addition to the built-in digitizer.

IInkTablet objects work closely with ink collector objects. An ink collector (InkCollector, InkOverlay, or InkPicture) can be set to one of two tablet-related modes:

  • All tablets mode
  • Single tablet integrated mode

The default mode is all tablets mode (set with the SetAllTabletsMode method of the ink collector). This mode integrates all tablet devices if multiple devices are attached to the Tablet PC. Because all of the tablets are integrated, available cursors can be used on any of the tablet devices, and each tablet maps to the entire screen. This allows automatic updating of the windows.

If you define a class that implements this interface, the new class will not interact correctly with the Tablet PC application programming interfaces (APIs).
