InkEdit controls


Specifies the time period in milliseconds between the last ink stroke and the start of text recognition.


In a painter

To specify that ink added to the InkEdit control is not converted to text:

  • Clear the InsertAsText check box on the Ink page in the Properties view.

In scripts

The RecognitionTimer property takes a long value. By default, ink is converted to text after two seconds (2000 milliseconds). If you want to give the user more time to enter text, increase the RecognitionTimer value.

This example sets the interval between the last stroke and the beginning of text recognition to one minute (60000 milliseconds):

ie_1.RecognitionTimer = 60000
