Return Value

Array of FrameworkElement objects.

An InkCanvas can contain both Stroke objects, which are created in response to user stylus input, and FrameworkElement objects, such as Image and Button objects. Using this method will return only FrameworkElement objects, not Stroke objects. To retrieve selected Stroke objects, call the GetSelectedStrokes method.

Both Stroke and FrameworkElement objects can be selected by user selection while the EditingMode of InkCanvas is set to EditingMode, or in code by calling the Select method.

The following example doubles the height and width of each selected element on an InkCanvas.

ScaleTransform scaler = new ScaleTransform(2,2);

ReadOnlyCollection<UIElement> selectedElements = inkCanvas1.GetSelectedElements();

foreach (UIElement element in selectedElements)
    element.RenderTransform = scaler;
