InkManager.CanPasteFromClipboard | canPasteFromClipboard method

[For Universal Windows apps using Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), we recommend using InkPresenter and the InkCanvas control instead of InkManager.]

Identifies whether content on the clipboard can be added to the InkStroke collection that is managed by the InkManager.

Note  Clipboard content must be in Ink Serialized Format (ISF).
 

Syntax


var boolean = inkManager.canPasteFromClipboard();

Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return value

Type: Boolean [JavaScript] | System.Boolean [.NET] | Platform::Boolean [C++]

True if content can be pasted from the clipboard; otherwise, false.

Examples

Here we show how to test whether the content on the clipboard can be added to an InkStroke collection before calling the PasteFromClipboard method.



function paste(evt)
{
    var insertionPoint = {x: 100, y: 60};
    var canPaste = inkManager.canPasteFromClipboard();
    if (canPaste)
    {
        inkManager.pasteFromClipboard(insertionPoint);
        displayStatus("Pasted");
        renderAllStrokes();
    }
    else
    {
        displayStatus("Cannot paste");
    }
}
