StylusPlugInCollection Class

Represent a collection of StylusPlugIn objects.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Input.StylusPlugIns
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

public ref class StylusPlugInCollection sealed : public Collection<StylusPlugIn^>
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

Each UIElement has a StylusPlugIns property that is a StylusPlugInCollection. Add a StylusPlugIn to the element's StylusPlugIns property to manipulate ink on the real-time thread. The order of the StylusPlugIn objects in the StylusPlugInCollection affects the appearance of the ink when it is rendered. Suppose you have a DynamicRenderer called dynamicRenderer and a custom StylusPlugIn called translatePlugin that offsets the ink from the tablet pen. If translatePlugin is the first StylusPlugIn in the StylusPlugInCollection, and dynamicRenderer is the second, the ink that "flows" will be offset as the user moves the pen. If dynamicRenderer is first, and translatePlugin is second, the ink will seem to "flow" underneath the pen, and when the user lifts the pen, the ink will move.

The following example demonstrates how to add a DynamicRenderer to a custom control. To create a control that collects ink, see Creating an Ink Input Control.
