InkCollector.MouseMove event

Occurs when the mouse pointer is moved over the InkCollector or InkOverlay object.


void MouseMove(
  [in]      InkMouseButton           Button,
  [in]      InkShiftKeyModifierFlags Shift,
  [in]      long                     pX,
  [in]      long                     pY,
  [in, out] VARIANT_BOOL             *Cancel


Button [in]

The mouse button that was pressed.

Shift [in]

The state of the SHIFT key.

pX [in]

The x-coordinate, in pixels, of a mouse click.

pY [in]

The y-coordinate, in pixels, of a mouse click.

Cancel [in, out]

VARIANT_TRUE to cancel the event for the parent control; otherwise, VARIANT_FALSE.

Return value

This event does not return a value.



The properties pX and pY are in pixels, and not the HIMETRIC units that are associated with the ink space. This is because this event replaces the related mouse event of a pen-unaware application and this type of application understands only pixels.


Some controls rely on a specific relationship between MouseDown, MouseMove, and MouseUp events. Canceling some of these events may have unanticipated results.

This event method is defined in the _IInkCollectorEvents, _IInkOverlayEvents, and _IInkPictureEvents dispatch-only interfaces (dispinterfaces) with an ID of DISPID_IPEMouseMove.
