A Stroke is the data object that is collected from a pointing device, such as a tablet pen or a mouse. The Stroke can be created and manipulated programmatically, and can be represented visually on an ink-enabled element, such as the InkCanvas. A Stroke contains information about both its position and appearance. The StylusPoints property is a collection of StylusPoint objects that specifies the position of the Stroke. The DrawingAttributes property specifies a stroke's appearance.
