Return value



Note  The CurrentPanel property cannot be set to Default or Inactive, only Handwriting or Keyboard.
When you create a PenInputPanel object, the Handwriting panel - also known as the writing pad - is the default input UI.

If you change the panel by setting the CurrentPanel property before the PenInputPanel object becomes active for the first time, a PanelChanged event occurs.

CurrentPanel returns the Inactive enumeration value if the panel window is associated with another instance of the PenInputPanel object. Setting the CurrentPanel property raises an exception if the panel is inactive or if the panel type is invalid.
