StylusPoint.PressureFactor StylusPoint.PressureFactor StylusPoint.PressureFactor StylusPoint.PressureFactor Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value between 0 and 1 that reflects the amount of pressure the stylus applies to the digitizer's surface when the StylusPoint is created.

public:
 property float PressureFactor { float get(); void set(float value); };
public float PressureFactor { get; set; }
member this.PressureFactor : single with get, set
Public Property PressureFactor As Single

Property Value

Value between 0 and 1 indicating the amount of pressure the stylus applies to the digitizer's surface as the StylusPoint is created.

Exceptions

Examples

The following example uses the PressureFactor property to retrieve and display the pressure value for each StylusPoint in a StylusPointCollection called points. This example assumes that there is a TextBlock called packetOutput.

private void WriteStylusPointValues(StylusPointCollection points)
{
    StylusPointDescription pointsDescription = points.Description;

    ReadOnlyCollection<StylusPointPropertyInfo> properties = 
        pointsDescription.GetStylusPointProperties();
    
    // Write the name and value of each property in
    // every stylus point.
    StringWriter packetWriter = new StringWriter();
    packetWriter.WriteLine("{0} stylus points", points.Count.ToString());
    foreach (StylusPoint stylusPoint in points)
    {
        packetWriter.WriteLine("Stylus Point info");
        packetWriter.WriteLine("X: {0}", stylusPoint.X.ToString());
        packetWriter.WriteLine("Y: {0}", stylusPoint.Y.ToString());
        packetWriter.WriteLine("Pressure: {0}", stylusPoint.PressureFactor.ToString());

        // Get the property name and value for each StylusPoint.
        // Note that this loop reports the X, Y, and pressure values differantly than 
        // getting their values above.
        for (int i = 0; i < pointsDescription.PropertyCount; ++i)
        {
            StylusPointProperty currentProperty = properties[i];

            // GetStylusPointPropertyName is defined below and returns the
            // name of the property.
            packetWriter.Write("{0}: ", GetStylusPointPropertyName(currentProperty));
            packetWriter.WriteLine(stylusPoint.GetPropertyValue(currentProperty).ToString());
        }
        packetWriter.WriteLine();

    }

    packetOutput.Text = packetWriter.ToString();

Remarks

The value of the PressureFactor property is expressed as a value between 0 and 1. A value of 0 indicates that no pressure is applied, while a value of 1 indicates that the maximum amount of pressure is applied. A value of 0.5 indicates that 50% of the maximum pressure is applied, and so on.
