Dependency property identifier field: StrokesProperty

In practical terms, you would generally never replace the complete Strokes collection (by using the "set" aspect of this property). However, when the collection of strokes is populated by user input, you might add, remove, or query stroke items from the existing collection. Typically you do this by handling user input events on a stylus device or mouse, creating new Stroke objects based on starting and ending positions during user actions, and adding these strokes to the collection.

In order to render, each Stroke in the collection held by Strokes must also have values established for the DrawingAttributes property.
