Methods

  Name Description
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Equals Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal. (Inherited from ValueType.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ToString Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)

Remarks

The StylusPoint structure represents a single point. All StylusPoint objects contain properties that indicate the (x, y) coordinates and the pressure.

NoteNote:

You can get the relevant PressureFactor only if the device supports it. Otherwise, PressureFactor will have a default value of 0.5.

Multiple StylusPoint objects typically make up a Stroke object. The Stroke object stores the stylus points in the StylusPoints property.

Examples

The following code example displays the x-coordinate, y-coordinate, and pressure data of each stylus point as they are added to a stroke.
