Represents an object that is useful for annotation scenarios where users are not concerned with performing recognition on ink but instead are interested in the size, shape, color, and position of the ink.

The IInkOverlayobject is well suited for note taking and basic scribbling. The primary intended use of this object is to display ink as ink.

In general, the run-time user interface for this object is a transparent window with opaque ink.

The MouseDown, MouseMove, and MouseUpevents return x– and y–coordinates in pixels, and not the HIMETRIC units that are associated with the ink space. This is because these events replace the mouse events of pen–unaware applications and these applications understand only pixels.

To improve your application's performance, dispose your IInkOverlayobject when it is no longer needed.

MFC Implementation Notes

Copy Code
BOOL CRecognitionAlternatesSampleCppView::OnWndMsg(UINT msg, WPARAM
  if(WM_DESTROY == msg)
  return CView::OnWndMsg(msg, wp, lp, pLR);
