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

public void Select(
	StrokeCollection selectedStrokes,
	IEnumerable<UIElement> selectedElements
You cannot use methods in XAML.


Type: System.Windows.Ink.StrokeCollection

A collection of Stroke objects to select.

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<UIElement>

A collection of UIElement objects to select.


One or more strokes in selectedStrokes is not included in the Strokes property.

An InkCanvas can contain Stroke objects, which are created in response to user stylus input and UIElement objects, such as Image and Button objects.

Selected strokes will be displayed with an adorner around them for ease of recognition and manipulation. UIElement objects will not display differently when selected. If a UIElement in selectedElements is not in the Children collection, Select ignores the UIElement.

The following example selects all the strokes and two elements on an InkCanvas. This example assumes that there is a TextBox called textbox1 and a Button called button1 - and that both controls are child elements of the InkCanvas.

inkCanvas1.Select(inkCanvas1.Strokes, new UIElement[] { textbox1, button1 });
