The point to hit test.

Return Value

A value that indication which part of the selection adorner intersects or surrounds the specified point.

Use the HitTestSelection method to determine whether the point is within selected strokes' bounds or on one of the eight handles. This is useful when performing drag and drop operations.

The following example demonstrates how use HitTestSelection to determine whether to create a DataObject to initiate drag and drop. To implement drag and drop between two InkCanvas objects, see How to: Drag and Drop Ink.

void InkCanvas_PreviewMouseDown(object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
    InkCanvas ic = (InkCanvas)sender;
    Point pt = e.GetPosition(ic);

    // If the user is moving selected strokes, prepare the strokes to be
    // moved to another InkCanvas.
    if (ic.HitTestSelection(pt) == 
        StrokeCollection selectedStrokes = ic.GetSelectedStrokes();
        StrokeCollection strokesToMove = selectedStrokes.Clone();
        // Remove the offset of the selected strokes so they
        // are positioned when the strokes are dropped.
        Rect inkBounds = strokesToMove.GetBounds();
        TranslateStrokes(strokesToMove, -inkBounds.X, -inkBounds.Y);
        // Perform drag and drop.
        MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
        DataObject dataObject = new DataObject(
            StrokeCollection.InkSerializedFormat, ms);
        DragDropEffects effects = 
            DragDrop.DoDragDrop(ic, dataObject, 

        if ((effects & DragDropEffects.Move) == 
            // Remove the selected strokes 
            // from the current InkCanvas.
