InkCanvas.GetSelectedElements Method

Retrieves the FrameworkElement objects that are selected in the InkCanvas.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

'Declaration
Public Function GetSelectedElements As ReadOnlyCollection(Of UIElement)

This method returns only FrameworkElement objects, not Stroke objects.

To retrieve selected Stroke objects, call the GetSelectedStrokes method.

The following example doubles the height and width of each selected element on an InkCanvas.

Dim scaler As New ScaleTransform(2, 2)

Dim selectedElements As ReadOnlyCollection(Of UIElement) = inkCanvas1.GetSelectedElements()

Dim element As UIElement
For Each element In selectedElements
    element.RenderTransform = scaler
Next element
