Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use two DrawingAttributes objects to simulate using a pen and a highlighter on the same InkCanvas. The highlighter's StylusTip property is set to Rectangle.

The example assumes the root element in the "XAML" file is a DockPanel called root. It also assumes that there is a Button called btnToggleHighlighter and that the Click event has been connected to the event handler.

InkCanvas inkCanvas1 = new InkCanvas();
DrawingAttributes inkDA;
DrawingAttributes highlighterDA;
bool useHighlighter = false;

// Add an InkCanvas to the window, and allow the user to 
// switch between using a green pen and a purple highlighter 
// on the InkCanvas.
private void WindowLoaded(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    inkCanvas1.Background = Brushes.DarkSlateBlue;
    inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes.Color = Colors.SpringGreen;

    root.Children.Add(inkCanvas1);

    // Set up the DrawingAttributes for the pen.
    inkDA = new DrawingAttributes();
    inkDA.Color = Colors.SpringGreen;
    inkDA.Height = 5;
    inkDA.Width = 5;
    inkDA.FitToCurve = false;

    // Set up the DrawingAttributes for the highlighter.
    highlighterDA = new DrawingAttributes();
    highlighterDA.Color = Colors.Orchid;
    highlighterDA.IsHighlighter = true;
    highlighterDA.IgnorePressure = true;
    highlighterDA.StylusTip = StylusTip.Rectangle;
    highlighterDA.Height = 30;
    highlighterDA.Width = 10;

    inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = inkDA;
}

// Create a button called switchHighlighter and use 
// SwitchHighlighter_Click to handle the Click event.  
// The useHighlighter variable is a boolean that indicates
// whether the InkCanvas renders ink as a highlighter.

// Switch between using the 'pen' DrawingAttributes and the 
// 'highlighter' DrawingAttributes.
void SwitchHighlighter_Click(Object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{
    useHighlighter = !useHighlighter;
    
    if (useHighlighter)
    {
        switchHighlighter.Content = "Use Pen";
        inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = highlighterDA;
    }
    else
    {
        switchHighlighter.Content = "Use Highlighter";
        inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = inkDA;
    }
}

Private WithEvents inkCanvas1 As New InkCanvas()
Private inkDA As DrawingAttributes
Private highlighterDA As DrawingAttributes
Private useHighlighter As Boolean = False

' Add an InkCanvas to the window, and allow the user to 
' switch between using a green pen and a purple highlighter

    root.Children.Add(inkCanvas1)

    inkDA = New DrawingAttributes()
    With inkDA
        .Color = Colors.SpringGreen
        .Height = 5
        .Width = 5
        .FitToCurve = True
    End With

    ' Set up the DrawingAttributes for the highlighter.

    With highlighterDA
        .Color = Colors.Orchid
        .IsHighlighter = True
        .IgnorePressure = True
        .StylusTip = StylusTip.Rectangle
        .Height = 30
        .Width = 10
    End With

    inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = inkDA

End Sub


' Create a button called switchHighlighter and use 
' SwitchHighlighter_Click to handle the Click event.  
' The useHighlighter variable is a boolean that indicates

' Switch between using the 'pen' DrawingAttributes and the

Private Sub SwitchHighlighter_Click(ByVal sender As [Object], ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    useHighlighter = Not useHighlighter

    If useHighlighter Then
        switchHighlighter.Content = "Use Pen"
        inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = highlighterDA
    Else

        switchHighlighter.Content = "Use Highlighter"
        inkCanvas1.DefaultDrawingAttributes = inkDA
    End If

End Sub

Remarks

You can specify the shape of the tip that is used to draw Stroke objects by setting the DrawingAttributes.StylusTip property.
