You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

The following example demonstrates how to use a RectangleStylusShape to perform hit testing on a StrokeCollection. This example assumes that there is an InkPresenter called presenter.

private void HitTestWithEraser(Point[] points)
    RectangleStylusShape eraser = new RectangleStylusShape(3, 3, 0);

    StrokeCollection strokes = presenter.Strokes.HitTest(points, eraser);

    foreach (Stroke s in strokes)
        s.DrawingAttributes.Color = Colors.Purple;


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
