InkEdit, InkPicture controls


Specifies whether the mouse can be used for input on a Tablet PC. This property has no effect on other computers.


In a painter

To specify that ink can be added using a mouse:

  • Select the UseMouseForInput check box on the Ink page in the Properties view.

In scripts

The UseMouseForInput property takes a boolean value. Do not change this property at runtime while the control is collecting or recognizing ink.

This code in a button's Clicked event checks that the status of the InkEdit control is idle before setting the UseMouseForInput property to true:

IF ie_1.Status = InkEditIdle! THEN   ie_1.UseMouseForInput = TRUE
ELSE   MessageBox("Please try again later",  &
      "Text is being recognized.")
