Definition

Returns the value of the custom property associated with the specified Guid.

public:
 System::Object ^ GetPropertyData(Guid propertyDataId);
public object GetPropertyData (Guid propertyDataId);
member this.GetPropertyData : Guid -> obj
Public Function GetPropertyData (propertyDataId As Guid) As Object

Parameters

propertyDataId
Guid Guid Guid Guid

The Guid associated with the custom property to get.

Returns

The value of the custom property associated with the specified Guid.

Exceptions

propertyDataId is not associated with a custom property of the StrokeCollection.

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to add and get custom property data. The AddTimeStamp_Click method uses the AddPropertyData method to add the current time to the StrokeCollection. The GetTimeStap_Click method uses the GetPropertyData method to retrieve the timestamp from the StrokeCollection. This example assumes that there is an InkCanvas called inkCanvas1.

Guid timestamp = new Guid("12345678-9012-3456-7890-123456789012");

// Add a timestamp to the StrokeCollection.
private void AddTimestamp_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{

    inkCanvas1.Strokes.AddPropertyData(timestamp, DateTime.Now);
}

// Get the timestamp of the StrokeCollection.
private void GetTimestamp_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
{

    if (inkCanvas1.Strokes.ContainsPropertyData(timestamp))
    {
        object date = inkCanvas1.Strokes.GetPropertyData(timestamp);

        if (date is DateTime)
        {
            MessageBox.Show("This StrokeCollection's timestamp is " +
                ((DateTime)date).ToString());
        }
    }
    else
    {
        MessageBox.Show(
            "The StrokeCollection does not have a timestamp.");
    }
}
Private timestamp As New Guid("12345678-9012-3456-7890-123456789012")

' Add a timestamp to the StrokeCollection.
Private Sub AddTimestamp_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    inkCanvas1.Strokes.AddPropertyData(timestamp, DateTime.Now)

End Sub

' Get the timestamp of the StrokeCollection.
Private Sub GetTimestamp_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As RoutedEventArgs)

    If inkCanvas1.Strokes.ContainsPropertyData(timestamp) Then

        Dim savedDate As Object = inkCanvas1.Strokes.GetPropertyData(timestamp)

        If TypeOf savedDate Is DateTime Then
            MessageBox.Show("This StrokeCollection's timestamp is " & _
                CType(savedDate, DateTime).ToString())
        End If
    Else
        MessageBox.Show("The StrokeCollection does not have a timestamp.")
    End If

End Sub

Remarks

The AddPropertyData and GetPropertyData methods enable you to add custom properties to a StrokeCollection. You can then include extra information with a StrokeCollection.
