They said it couldn't be done ;) but we're back with another episode of 'Context' where this time we're looking at digital ink and digitised pens.
Inking has long been a focus of Microsoft and the modern platform built around DirectInk and the InkCanvas control provides a great experience for the user while being the most performant, most capable inking platform we've built and yet it also has a low barrier to entry for the developer.
In this show, we spend time on InkCanvas and what it can do for you having spent a little time reviewing how we used to do things and why InkCanvas is better. We'll also look at a couple of things coming in inking for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
