Enabling two RealTimeStylus objects with overlapping window input rectangles generates an exception.


This Microsoft® Visual C#® .NET example is a snippet from a form's Load Leave Site event handler, which creates a GestureRecognizer, DynamicRenderer, and two RealTimeStylus objects, attaches the objects in a cascaded RealTimeStylus model, and enables dynamic rendering, gesture recognition, and tablet pen data collection through the RealTimeStylus. The GestureRecognizer object is set to recognize single-stroke gestures and to only recognize the Right, ChevronRight, and ArrowRight application gestures. The primary RealTimeStylus object's WindowInputRectangle property is explicitly set to use the entire control to which the RealTimeStylus object is attached. The form itself implements the IStylusAsyncPlugin interface and is attached to the RealTimeStylus object.
