Examples

In this example, we disable the handwriting view by setting the IsHandwritingViewEnabled ​property of the TextBox control to false. All text controls that support the handwriting view support a similar property. ​

<TextBox Name="SampleTextBox"​
    Height="50" Width="500" ​
    FontSize="36" FontFamily="Segoe UI" ​
    PlaceholderText="Try taping with your pen" ​
    IsHandwritingViewEnabled="False">​
</TextBox>​

Remarks

When a user taps into a text input box using a Windows pen, the text box transforms to let the user write directly into it with a pen, rather than opening a separate input panel.
