ImageNode Class

Represents a ContextNode for a two-dimensional region where any non-ink images may exist in the application.

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

public sealed class ImageNode : ContextNode
public final class ImageNode extends ContextNode
public final class ImageNode extends ContextNode
Not applicable.

The InkAnalyzer does not produce ImageNode objects. The application uses the CreateSubNode method to add the ImageNode objects to the context node tree. If the state of the analyzer is persisted, these nodes can be persisted as well.

Future recognizers may use the regions defined by the ImageNode objects to determine if any ink annotates the non-ink image.

An ImageNode cannot have any children.

The following example adds an ImageNode to an InkAnalyzer, theInkAnalyzer, for an Image, theImage. It sets the location of the ImageNode to the location of the Image and the Data property to the Source property of the Image.

// Add image node
ImageNode pictureNode = (ImageNode)

// Set the location of the image node
double imageTop = InkCanvas.GetTop(theImage);
double imageLeft = InkCanvas.GetLeft(theImage);

Rect imageBounds = new Rect(imageLeft, imageTop, theImage.Width, theImage.Height);
pictureNode.SetLocation(new AnalysisRegion(imageBounds));

// Serialize the image to a byte array and set ImageNode.Data to the array.
// theImage.Source is a BitmapImage.
BmpBitmapEncoder bmp = new BmpBitmapEncoder();
using (System.IO.MemoryStream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream())
    pictureNode.Data = stream.ToArray();
