StrokeType Enumeration

Defines values that indicate whether or not a Stroke should be analyzed as part of a drawing or as part of writing.

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

public enum StrokeType

Member nameDescription
UnspecifiedIndicates that the stroke may be part of a drawing or writing.
WritingIndicates that the stroke is part of writing.
DrawingIndicates that the stroke is part of a drawing.

The following example shows part of a StrokeCollected event handler, in which e is the InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventArgs object. The example checks the Stroke to see if it has been drawn below a margin named drawingMargin. If the top of the stroke is below drawingMargin, then the InkAnalyzer, named theInkAnalyzer, is set to analyze the stroke as a drawing stroke, rather than as a handwriting stroke.

if (e.Stroke.GetBounds().Top > drawingMargin)
    theInkAnalyzer.SetStrokeType(e.Stroke, StrokeType.Drawing);
