public sealed class PinchContactPoints

The PinchContactPoints type exposes the following members.

Public propertyCenterGets the center between the primary and secondary contact points.
Public propertyPrimaryContactGets the primary contact point.
Public propertySecondaryContactGets the current secondary contact point.

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 the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)

Every time there are two or more fingers touching the screen, it is considered a pinch gesture. The platform will return the best two contact points that represent the pinch gesture and return them as primary and secondary contact points. The very first set of primary/secondary contact points of a pinch gesture is considered the original set. While the pinch gesture is occurring, if all other fingers are raised and only one finger is still touching the screen, it is no longer considered a pinch gesture, but it now transforms to become a drag (or a flick). If any other finger touches the screen again, it triggers a new pinch gesture with a new set of original contact points. All of this can be considered part of one single manipulation (between one ManipulationStarted and ManipulationCompleted event) until all the fingers are raised.
