ContextNodeCollection Class

Contains a collection of ContextNode objects that are the result of an ink analysis.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Ink
Assembly:  IAWinFX (in IAWinFX.dll)

public class ContextNodeCollection : ICollection, 

The following example shows how to loop through a ContextNodeCollection from the InkAnalyzer. FindNodesOfType(ContextNodeType, ContextNode) method of an InkAnalyzer named theInkAnalyzer. The example loops through a collection of LineNode objects and, if two consecutive InkWordNode objects are the same word, it makes their strokes red.

// If two identical ink words occur next to each other, mark them as red. 
// Note: This doesn't actually look for pairs that go across two lines.
ContextNodeCollection lines =
foreach (ContextNode lineNode in lines)
    InkWordNode previousWord = null;
    foreach (InkWordNode inkWord in
             theInkAnalyzer.FindNodesOfType(ContextNodeType.InkWord, lineNode))
        if (previousWord != null &&
            previousWord.GetRecognizedString() == inkWord.GetRecognizedString())
            foreach (Stroke stroke in previousWord.Strokes)
                stroke.DrawingAttributes.Color = Colors.Red;
            foreach (Stroke stroke in inkWord.Strokes)
                stroke.DrawingAttributes.Color = Colors.Red;
        previousWord = inkWord;
