Return Value

The smallest rectangle that encompasses all selected strokes and elements.

The following example prevents the user from making a selection smaller than its original size.

Rect selectionBounds;

// Don't allow the user to make the selection smaller than its original size.
void inkCanvas1_SelectionResizing(object sender, InkCanvasSelectionEditingEventArgs e)
{
    if (selectionBounds == null || selectionBounds.IsEmpty)
    {
        return;
    }

    double resizeHeight;
    double resizeWidth;

    // If the user made the height of the selection smaller, 
    // use the selection's original height.
    if (e.NewRectangle.Height < selectionBounds.Height)
    {
        resizeHeight = selectionBounds.Height;
    }
    else
    {
        resizeHeight = e.NewRectangle.Height;
    }

    // If the user made the width of the selection smaller, 
    // use the selection's original width.
    if (e.NewRectangle.Width < selectionBounds.Width)
    {
        resizeWidth = selectionBounds.Width;
    }
    else
    {
        resizeWidth = e.NewRectangle.Width;
    }

    // Create a the new rectangle with the appropriate width and height.
    e.NewRectangle = new Rect(e.NewRectangle.X, e.NewRectangle.Y, resizeWidth, resizeHeight);
}

// Keep track of the selection bounds.
void inkCanvas1_SelectionChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    selectionBounds = inkCanvas1.GetSelectionBounds();
}
