InkCanvas.GetSelectedElements Method


Retrieves the FrameworkElement objects that are selected in the InkCanvas.

 System::Collections::ObjectModel::ReadOnlyCollection<System::Windows::UIElement ^> ^ GetSelectedElements();
public System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Windows.UIElement> GetSelectedElements ();
member this.GetSelectedElements : unit -> System.Collections.ObjectModel.ReadOnlyCollection<System.Windows.UIElement>
Public Function GetSelectedElements () As ReadOnlyCollection(Of UIElement)



Array of FrameworkElement objects.


The following example doubles the height and width of each selected element on an InkCanvas.

ScaleTransform scaler = new ScaleTransform(2,2);

ReadOnlyCollection<UIElement> selectedElements = inkCanvas1.GetSelectedElements();

foreach (UIElement element in selectedElements)
    element.RenderTransform = scaler;
Dim scaler As New ScaleTransform(2, 2)

Dim selectedElements As ReadOnlyCollection(Of UIElement) = inkCanvas1.GetSelectedElements()

Dim element As UIElement
For Each element In selectedElements
    element.RenderTransform = scaler
Next element


This method returns only FrameworkElement objects, not Stroke objects.

To retrieve selected Stroke objects, call the GetSelectedStrokes method.

If the EditingMode of InkCanvas is set to EditingMode, users can select Stroke objects and FrameworkElement objects. Alternatively, both types of objects can be selected using code: just call the Select method.
