Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

public sealed class Stroke : DependencyObject

The Stroke type exposes the following members.

Public methodStroke()Initializes a new instance of the Stroke class.
Public methodStroke(StylusPointCollection)Initializes a new instance of the Stroke class with the specified StylusPointCollection.

Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyDrawingAttributesGets or sets the properties of the stroke, such as Height, Width, Color, or OutlineColor.
Public propertyStylusPointsGets or sets the stylus points of the Stroke.

Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValueClears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
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 methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetBoundsRetrieves the bounding box for the Stroke object.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodHitTestIndicates whether a specified StylusPointCollection intersects with a Stroke object.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValueSets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

A Stroke is the data object that is collected from a pointing device, such as a tablet pen or your finger. The Stroke can be created and manipulated programmatically, and can be represented visually on an ink-enabled element, such as the InkPresenter. A Stroke contains information about both its position and appearance. The StylusPoints property is a collection of StylusPoint objects that specifies the geometry of the Stroke. The DrawingAttributes property specifies a stroke's appearance.

The following code example shows how can create a static stroke using XAML.

    <InkPresenter x:Name="MyIP" Height="100" Width="200" Background="Transparent">
                        <DrawingAttributes Color="Red" OutlineColor="Black" Width="5" Height="5"/>
                        <StylusPoint X="50" Y="50"/>
                        <StylusPoint X="55" Y="55"/>
                        <StylusPoint X="60" Y="60"/>
                        <StylusPoint X="65" Y="65"/>
                        <StylusPoint X="70" Y="70"/>
                        <StylusPoint X="75" Y="75"/>
