This example is part of a larger example that is available in the TouchDevice class overview.

private void canvas_TouchDown(object sender, TouchEventArgs e)
{
    Canvas _canvas = (Canvas)sender as Canvas;
    if (_canvas != null)
    {
        _canvas.Children.Clear();
        e.TouchDevice.Capture(_canvas);

        // Record the ID of the first touch point if it hasn't been recorded.
        if (firstTouchId == -1)
            firstTouchId = e.TouchDevice.Id;
    }
}
' Touch Down
Private Sub canvas_TouchDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Input.TouchEventArgs)
    Dim _canvas As Canvas = CType(sender, Canvas)
    If (_canvas IsNot Nothing) Then
        _canvas.Children.Clear()
        e.TouchDevice.Capture(_canvas)

        ' Record the ID of the first touch point if it hasn't been recorded.
        If firstTouchId = -1 Then
            firstTouchId = e.TouchDevice.Id
