DrawingAttributes.Height Property


Gets or sets the height of the stylus used to draw the Stroke.

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

public double Height { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Double

The value that indicates the height of the stylus used to draw the Stroke.

Exception Condition

The Height property is less than Double.Epsilon or Double.NaN.

The following factors affect the height and width of a Stroke when it is rendered, but not the value of the Height property.

If you set the Height property to 0 device independent pixels (DIP), it is changed to 2 DIP.

This property is not typically used in XAML.

The following example demonstrates how to set the Height property. The example assumes that your application has an InkCanvas called inkCanvas1, and two DrawingAttributes objects called inkDA and highlighterDA. For the complete example, see the DrawingAttributes class overview.

// Set up the DrawingAttributes for the pen.
inkDA = new DrawingAttributes();
inkDA.Color = Colors.SpringGreen;
inkDA.Height = 5;
inkDA.Width = 5;
inkDA.FitToCurve = false;
inkDA.StylusTipTransform = new Matrix(1, 0, 0, 5, 0, 0);

// Set up the DrawingAttributes for the highlighter.
highlighterDA = new DrawingAttributes();
highlighterDA.Color = Colors.Orchid;
highlighterDA.IsHighlighter = true;
highlighterDA.IgnorePressure = true;
highlighterDA.StylusTip = StylusTip.Rectangle;
highlighterDA.Height = 30;
highlighterDA.Width = 10;

inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = inkDA;
