ContextNodeBase Class

Represents a node in a tree of objects that are created as part of ink analysis.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Ink.AnalysisCore
Assembly:  IACore (in IACore.dll)

public class ContextNodeBase

This example takes an InkAnalyzerBase named theInkAnalyzer, and uses its ContextNodeBase tree to fill a System.Windows.Forms.TreeView named theTreeView. When a node in the tree view is selected, those strokes are set to appear in red. The Tag property is used to map between tree nodes and the context nodes that they represent.

    this.theTreeView.Nodes.Clear();
    TreeNode rootNode =
        new TreeNode(this.theInkAnalyzerBase.RootNode.ToString());

    rootNode.Tag = this.theInkAnalyzerBase.RootNode;

    WalkTree(this.theInkAnalyzerBase.RootNode, rootNode);
}
