  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetStylusPointsGets the stylus points that are collected from the stylus.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodNotifyWhenProcessedSubscribes to the application thread's corresponding stylus methods.
Public methodSetStylusPointsSets the stylus points that are passed to the application thread.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Use the RawStylusInput to get information about the input the StylusPlugIn receives when the user moves the stylus.

The following example creates a StylusPlugIn that checks for the Down gesture. The StylusPlugIn calls NotifyWhenProcessed in OnStylusUp to subscribe to the OnStylusUpProcessed method, which is called from the application thread.


class RecognizerPlugin : StylusPlugIn
{
    GestureRecognizer recognizer;

    // StylusPointCollection that contains the stylus points of the current
    // stroke.
    StylusPointCollection points;

    // Keeps track of the stylus to check whether two styluses are used on the
    // digitizer.
    int currentStylus;

    public RecognizerPlugin()
        : base()
    {
        recognizer = new GestureRecognizer();
    }

    // Collect the points as the user draws the stroke.
    protected override void OnStylusDown(RawStylusInput rawStylusInput)
    {
        // If points is not null, there is already a stroke taking place
        // on the digitizer, so don't create a new StylusPointsCollection.
        if (points == null)
        {
            points = new StylusPointCollection(rawStylusInput.GetStylusPoints().Description);
            points.Add(rawStylusInput.GetStylusPoints());
            currentStylus = rawStylusInput.StylusDeviceId;
        }
    }

    // Collect the points as the user draws the stroke.
    protected override void OnStylusMove(RawStylusInput rawStylusInput)
    {
        // Check whether the stylus that started the stroke is the same, and
        // that the element hasn't lost focus since the stroke began.
            if (points != null && currentStylus == rawStylusInput.StylusDeviceId)
        {
            points.Add(rawStylusInput.GetStylusPoints());
        }
    }

    // Collect the points as the user draws the stroke.
    protected override void OnStylusUp(RawStylusInput rawStylusInput)
    {
        // Check whether the stylus that started the stroke is the same, and
        // that the element hasn't lost focus since the stroke began.
        if (points != null && currentStylus == rawStylusInput.StylusDeviceId)
        {
            points.Add(rawStylusInput.GetStylusPoints());

            // Subscribe to the OnStylusUpProcessed method.
            rawStylusInput.NotifyWhenProcessed(points);
        }

        points = null;
        currentStylus = 0;
    }

    // If the element loses focus, stop collecting the points and don't
    // perform gesture recognition.
    protected override void OnStylusLeave(RawStylusInput rawStylusInput, bool confirmed)
    {
        if (confirmed)
        {
            // Clear the StylusPointCollection
            points = null;
            currentStylus = 0;
        }
    }

    // This method is called on the application thread.
    protected override void OnStylusUpProcessed(object callbackData, bool targetVerified)
    {
        // Check that the element actually receive the OnStylusUp input.
        if (targetVerified && recognizer.IsRecognizerAvailable)
        {
            StylusPointCollection strokePoints = callbackData as StylusPointCollection;

            if (strokePoints == null)

                return;
            }

            // Create a StrokeCollection to pass to the GestureRecognizer.
            Stroke newStroke = new Stroke(strokePoints);
            StrokeCollection strokes = new StrokeCollection();
            strokes.Add(newStroke);

            ReadOnlyCollection<GestureRecognitionResult> results = recognizer.Recognize(strokes);

            // If the GestureRecognizer recognizes the stroke as a Down
            // gesture with strong confidence, raise an event.
            if (results[0].ApplicationGesture == ApplicationGesture.Down &&
                results[0].RecognitionConfidence == RecognitionConfidence.Strong)
            {
                //raise event
