InkWordNode Class

Represents a ContextNode for a collection of strokes that make up a logical grouping that forms a recognizable word.

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

public sealed class InkWordNode : ContextNode

An InkWordNode object cannot contain any children.

The following example loops through all InkWordNode objects from an InkAnalyzer, theInkAnalyzer, and then draws lines that show the rotated bounding rectangle, the ascender line, ascenderLine, the descender line, descenderLine, the midline, and the baseline. The lines are drawn on an InkCanvas, theInkCanvas.

// Loop through all of the ink words
ContextNodeCollection inkWords =
foreach (InkWordNode inkWord in inkWords)
    // Show rotated bounding box in blue
    Polygon rotatedBounds = new Polygon();

    rotatedBounds.Points = inkWord.GetRotatedBoundingBox();
    rotatedBounds.Stroke = Brushes.Blue;


    // Show the ascender line in green
    Polyline ascenderLine = new Polyline();

    ascenderLine.Points = inkWord.GetAscender();
    ascenderLine.Stroke = Brushes.Green;


    // Show the baseline in purple
    Polyline baseline = new Polyline();

    baseline.Points = inkWord.GetBaseline();
    baseline.Stroke = Brushes.Purple;


    // Show the descender line in yellow
    Polyline descenderLine = new Polyline();

    descenderLine.Points = inkWord.GetDescender();
    descenderLine.Stroke = Brushes.Yellow;


    // Show the midline in brown
    Polyline midline = new Polyline();

    midline.Points = inkWord.GetMidline();
    midline.Stroke = Brushes.Brown;
