Finalize Allows an Object to attempt to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. Inherited from Object . GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. Inherited from Object . GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. Inherited from Object . MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object . Inherited from Object . ReferenceEquals Determines whether the specified Object instances are the same instance. Inherited from Object . ToString Returns a String that represents the current Object . Inherited from Object .

This object represents the physical stylus that the user holds. Physical stylii may have multiple tips (such as normal and eraser ends), with each stylus tip corresponding to a different Stylus object. Some Tablet PCs allow multiple stylii. Each Stylus object has an associated globally unique identifier (GUID) that is unique on a system. For more information about how stylii can be used with a Tablet PC, see Pen Overview.
Stylii exist within the scope of a RealTimeStylus object. When a RealTimeStylus object encounters a new Stylus object, the RealTimeStylus object calls the IStylusSyncPlugin.StylusInRange method of each of its synchronous plug-ins, and finally the IStylusAsyncPlugin.StylusInRange method of its asynchronous plug-ins. The RealTimeStylus object maintains a list of the Stylus objects it has encountered. This list can be accessed by calling the RealTimeStylus object's GetStyluses method.
