The following example demonstrates how to set the StylusTipTransform 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;
