InkCanvas.StrokeCollected Event


Occurs when a stroke drawn by the user is added to the Strokes property.

 event System::Windows::Controls::InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventHandler ^ StrokeCollected;
public event System.Windows.Controls.InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventHandler StrokeCollected;
member this.StrokeCollected : System.Windows.Controls.InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventHandler 
Public Custom Event StrokeCollected As InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventHandler 

Event Type



The following example saves the time as a custom property when a user adds a stroke to the InkCanvas.

Guid currentTimeGuid = new Guid("12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012");

void inkCanvas1_StrokeCollected(object sender, InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventArgs e)
    e.Stroke.AddPropertyData(currentTimeGuid, DateTime.Now);
Private currentTimeGuid As New Guid("12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012")

Private Sub inkCanvas1_StrokeCollected(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventArgs)

    e.Stroke.AddPropertyData(currentTimeGuid, DateTime.Now)

End Sub


This event is raised when a user completes a stroke using a pointing device. For example, a user might raise a stylus from a digitizer after making a motion, thereby completing a stroke.

The event handler receives an argument of type InkCanvasStrokeCollectedEventArgs, which references the completed stroke. The stroke is also added to the Strokes property of the InkCanvas.

The programmatic addition of a Stroke object to the Strokes collection does not raise this event.
