InkCanvas.EraserShape Property


Gets or sets the StylusShape used to point-erase ink from an InkCanvas.

 property System::Windows::Ink::StylusShape ^ EraserShape { System::Windows::Ink::StylusShape ^ get(); void set(System::Windows::Ink::StylusShape ^ value); };
public System.Windows.Ink.StylusShape EraserShape { get; set; }
member this.EraserShape : System.Windows.Ink.StylusShape with get, set
Public Property EraserShape As StylusShape

Property Value


The eraser shape associated with the InkCanvas.


The following example demonstrates how to allow a user to partially erase strokes with the inverted tip of a stylus. An elliptical cursor appears on the InkCanvas when the user erases ink.

inkCanvas1.EditingModeInverted = InkCanvasEditingMode.EraseByPoint;
inkCanvas1.EraserShape = new EllipseStylusShape(5, 5);
inkCanvas1.EditingModeInverted = InkCanvasEditingMode.EraseByPoint
inkCanvas1.EraserShape = New EllipseStylusShape(5, 5)


This shape will be used to erase ink from an InkCanvas when the current EditingMode is set to EraseByPoint.

Individual properties of a StylusShape cannot be modified once the shape has been created.

If you change the EraserShape, the cursor rendered on the InkCanvas is not updated until the next EditingMode change.
