IInkDrawingAttributes::get_Width method (msinkaut.h)

Gets or sets the y-axis dimension, or width, of the pen tip when drawing ink.

This property is read/write.


HRESULT get_Width(
  float *CurrentWidth



Return value



If the tablet reports pen pressure (if the IgnorePressure property is false), the actual width of the ink varies depending on the amount of pressure applied to the drawing surface. When maximum pressure is applied, the width is 150% of the value of the Width property. When minimum pressure is applied, the width is 50% of the value of the Width property. By default, this property is set to true, so that pressure from the pen is reported. To specify that pressure should not be reported (that the width of ink does not change), set the IgnorePressure property to true.

Precision is limited to one one-thousandth of a HIMETRIC unit (three digits to the right of the decimal point). For example, if you specify a value of 2.0006, the most precise measurement is 2.001.
