Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

public StylusShape EraserShape { get; set; }
This property is not typically used in XAML.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Ink.StylusShape
The eraser shape associated with the InkCanvas.

This shape will be used to erase ink from an InkCanvas when the current EditingMode is set to EraseByPoint.

Individual properties of a StylusShape cannot be modified once the shape has been created.

If you change the EraserShape, the cursor rendered on the InkCanvas is not updated until the next EditingMode change.

The following example demonstrates how to allow a user to partially erase strokes with the inverted tip of a stylus. An elliptical cursor appears on the InkCanvas when the user erases ink.


inkCanvas1.EditingModeInverted = InkCanvasEditingMode.EraseByPoint;
inkCanvas1.EraserShape = new EllipseStylusShape(5, 5);
