GetSelectedElements Method

InkCanvas.GetSelectedElements Method ()


Retrieves the FrameworkElement objects that are selected in the InkCanvas.

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

public ReadOnlyCollection<UIElement> GetSelectedElements()

This method returns only FrameworkElement objects, not Stroke objects.

To retrieve selected Stroke objects, call the GetSelectedStrokes method.

If the EditingMode of InkCanvas is set to EditingMode, users can select Stroke objects and FrameworkElement objects. Alternatively, both types of objects can be selected using code: just call 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;
