Examples

The following example demonstrates how to determine whether a Stroke is a ScratchOut gesture.

private bool InterpretScratchoutGesture(Stroke stroke)
{
    // Attempt to instantiate a recognizer for scratchout gestures.
    ApplicationGesture[] gestures = {ApplicationGesture.ScratchOut};
    GestureRecognizer recognizer = new GestureRecognizer(gestures);

    if (!recognizer.IsRecognizerAvailable)
        return false;

    // Determine if the stroke was a scratchout gesture.
    StrokeCollection gestureStrokes = new StrokeCollection();
    gestureStrokes.Add(stroke);

    ReadOnlyCollection<GestureRecognitionResult> results = recognizer.Recognize(gestureStrokes);

    if (results.Count == 0)
        return false;

    // Results are returned sorted in order strongest-to-weakest; 
    // we need only analyze the first (strongest) result.
    if (results[0].ApplicationGesture == ApplicationGesture.ScratchOut &&
          results[0].RecognitionConfidence == RecognitionConfidence.Strong)
    {
        // Use the scratchout stroke to perform hit-testing and 
        // erase existing strokes, as necessary.
        return true;
    }
    else
    {
        // Not a gesture: display the stroke normally.
        return false;
    }
}
Private Function InterpretScratchoutGesture(ByVal stroke As Stroke) As Boolean
    ' Attempt to instantiate a recognizer for scratchout gestures.
    Dim gestures() As ApplicationGesture = {ApplicationGesture.ScratchOut}

    Dim recognizer As New GestureRecognizer(gestures)

    If Not recognizer.IsRecognizerAvailable Then
        Return False
    End If

    ' Determine if the stroke was a scratchout gesture.
    Dim gestureStrokes As StrokeCollection = New StrokeCollection()
    gestureStrokes.Add(stroke)

    Dim results As ReadOnlyCollection(Of GestureRecognitionResult)
    results = recognizer.Recognize(gestureStrokes)

    If results.Count = 0 Then
        Return False
    End If

    ' Results are returned sorted in order strongest-to-weakest; 
    ' we need only analyze the first (strongest) result.
    If (results(0).ApplicationGesture = ApplicationGesture.ScratchOut) Then

        ' Use the scratchout stroke to perform hit-testing and 
        ' erase existing strokes, as necessary.
        Return True
    Else
        ' Not a gesture: display the stroke normally.
        Return False
    End If
End Function

Remarks

A GestureRecognizer identifies an ink gesture. You can set the GestureRecognizer to recognize all or a subset of application gestures. To set the GestureRecognizer to recognize a subset of the available gestures, pass an ApplicationGesture array to the constructor or use the SetEnabledGestures method. To determine whether a StrokeCollection contains a gesture, call the Recognize method.

XAML Text Usage

You cannot use this class in XAML.
