The HitTestSelection method returns an InkCanvasSelectionHitResult to indicate which part of the selection adorner intersects or surrounds a Point. This is useful when performing drag-and-drop operations.

This class is not typically used in XAML.

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.

Private Sub InkCanvas_PreviewMouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, _
                               ByVal e As MouseButtonEventArgs)

    Dim ic As InkCanvas = CType(sender, InkCanvas)

    Dim pt As Point = e.GetPosition(ic)

    ' If the user is moving selected strokes, prepare the strokes to be
    ' moved to another InkCanvas.
    If ic.HitTestSelection(pt) = InkCanvasSelectionHitResult.Selection Then

        Dim selectedStrokes As StrokeCollection = _

        Dim strokesToMove As StrokeCollection = _

        ' Remove the offset of the selected strokes so they
        ' are positioned when the strokes are dropped.
        Dim inkBounds As Rect = strokesToMove.GetBounds()
        TranslateStrokes(strokesToMove, -inkBounds.X, -inkBounds.Y)

        ' Perform drag and drop.
        Dim ms As New MemoryStream()

        Dim dataObject As New DataObject _
            (StrokeCollection.InkSerializedFormat, ms)

        Dim effects As DragDropEffects = _
            DragDrop.DoDragDrop(ic, dataObject, DragDropEffects.Move)

        If (effects And DragDropEffects.Move) = DragDropEffects.Move Then

            ' Remove the selected strokes from the current InkCanvas.
        End If
    End If

End Sub 'OnMouseDown
