StylusPointPropertyInfo Class


Specifies the constraints of a property in a StylusPoint.

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


Public Class StylusPointPropertyInfo
	Inherits StylusPointProperty


Initializes a new instance of the StylusPointPropertyInfo class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodStylusPointPropertyInfo(StylusPointProperty, Int32, Int32, StylusPointPropertyUnit, Single)

Initializes a new instance of the StylusPointPropertyInfo class using the specified values.


Gets the GUID for the current StylusPointProperty.(Inherited from StylusPointProperty.)


Gets whether the StylusPointProperty represents a button on the stylus.(Inherited from StylusPointProperty.)


Gets the maximum value accepted for the StylusPoint property.


Gets the minimum value accepted for the StylusPoint property.


Gets the scale that converts a StylusPoint property value into units.


Gets the type of measurement that is used by StylusPoint property.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from StylusPointProperty.)

The StylusPointPropertyInfo class inherits from the StylusPointProperty class and generates the Minimum, Maximum, Resolution, and Unit values used to define the properties of a StylusPoint. The validity of each property value varies depending on the manufacture of the digitizer and stylus.

The following example creates an StylusPointDescription object from a StylusPointCollection and gets the information for each StylusPointPropertyInfo in the StylusPointDescription.

Private Sub WriteDescriptionInfo(ByVal points As StylusPointCollection) 

    Dim pointsDescription As StylusPointDescription = points.Description

    Dim properties As ReadOnlyCollection(Of StylusPointPropertyInfo) = _

    Dim descriptionStringWriter As New StringWriter
    descriptionStringWriter.Write("Property Count:{0}", pointsDescription.PropertyCount.ToString())

    Dim pointProperty As StylusPointPropertyInfo
    For Each pointProperty In properties

        ' GetStylusPointPropertyName is defined below and returns the
        ' name of the property.
        descriptionStringWriter.Write("name = {0}", GetStylusPointPropertyName(pointProperty).ToString())
        descriptionStringWriter.WriteLine("  Guid = {0}", pointProperty.Id.ToString())
        descriptionStringWriter.Write("  IsButton = {0}", pointProperty.IsButton.ToString())
        descriptionStringWriter.Write("  Min = {0}", pointProperty.Minimum.ToString())
        descriptionStringWriter.Write("  Max = {0}", pointProperty.Maximum.ToString())
        descriptionStringWriter.Write("  Unit = {0}", pointProperty.Unit.ToString())
        descriptionStringWriter.WriteLine("  Res {0}", pointProperty.Resolution.ToString())

    Next pointProperty

    descriptionOutput.Text = descriptionStringWriter.ToString()

End Sub 'WriteDescriptionInfo

' Use reflection to get the name of currentProperty.
Private Function GetStylusPointPropertyName(ByVal currentProperty As StylusPointProperty) As String 
    Dim guid As Guid = currentProperty.Id

    ' Iterate through the StylusPointProperties to find the StylusPointProperty
    ' that matches currentProperty, then return the name.
    Dim theFieldInfo As FieldInfo

    For Each theFieldInfo In GetType(StylusPointProperties).GetFields()

        Dim pointProperty As StylusPointProperty = _
            CType(theFieldInfo.GetValue(currentProperty), StylusPointProperty)

        If pointProperty.Id = guid Then
            Return theFieldInfo.Name
        End If

    Next theFieldInfo

    Return "Not found"

End Function 'GetStylusPointPropertyName
