InkAnalyzer.InkAnalyzerStateChanging Event

Occurs before the InkAnalyzer reconciles analysis results so that an application can synchronize data with the InkAnalyzer.

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

public event InkAnalyzerStateChangingEventHandler InkAnalyzerStateChanging
/** @event */
public void add_InkAnalyzerStateChanging (InkAnalyzerStateChangingEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_InkAnalyzerStateChanging (InkAnalyzerStateChangingEventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

Use this event when your application maintains its own data structure, which is synchronized with that of the InkAnalyzer. When the InkAnalyzer raises the InkAnalyzerStateChanging event, your application should populate the SubNodes property of the InkAnalyzer object's RootNode. During the reconcile phase, the InkAnalyzer uses this information as it parses and performs recognition of the ink.

The InkAnalyzer raises this event after it raises the ReadyToReconcile event. It raises this event only while performing background analysis.

Lock your data structure when the ink analyzer raises the InkAnalyzerStateChanging event. Changes to your data structure during this phase of analysis can cause errors in ink analysis and synchronization. You can unlock your data structure when the ink analyzer raises the IntermediateResults or Results event.

For more information about synchronizing your application data with the InkAnalyzer, see Data Proxy with Ink Analysis.

This example defines a method, AttachDataProxyEventHandlers, that attaches data proxy event handlers to an InkAnalyzer, theInkAnalyzer.

private void AttachDataProxyEventHandlers()
    // If the document model supports on demand data proxy, then add an
    // event handler for the PopulateContextNode event. This event is raised
    // when the InkAnalyzer accesses a partially populated ContextNode created
    // by the document model.
    if (this.theDocumentModel.SupportsOnDemandDataProxy)
        this.theInkAnalyzer.PopulateContextNode +=
            new PopulateContextNodeEventHandler(

    // Add the other data proxy related event handlers. These events are raised
    // by the InkAnalyzer to communicate ink analysis results to the document model.
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodeCreated +=
        new ContextNodeCreatedEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodeDeleting +=
        new ContextNodeDeletingEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodeLinkAdding +=
        new ContextNodeLinkAddingEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodeLinkDeleting +=
        new ContextNodeLinkDeletingEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodeMovingToPosition +=
        new ContextNodeMovingToPositionEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodePropertiesUpdated +=
        new ContextNodePropertiesUpdatedEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ContextNodeReparenting +=
        new ContextNodeReparentingEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.InkAnalyzerStateChanging +=
        new InkAnalyzerStateChangingEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.StrokesReparented +=
        new StrokesReparentedEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.IntermediateResultsUpdated +=
        new ResultsUpdatedEventHandler(
    this.theInkAnalyzer.ResultsUpdated +=
        new ResultsUpdatedEventHandler(

The following example defines the method, InkAnalyzer_StateChanging, that handles the InkAnalyzerStateChanging event. The event information is passed to the document model object, theDocumentModel.

This example does not provide the definition of the document model or demonstrate how it processes the information passed to it.
