4 Tablet PC Platform Overview Ink collection Ink data and management Ink recognition

5 Ink Collection (Input) Digitizer basics Very high resolution Very high throughput Packet properties X, Y Pressure, angle, rotation, etc … Using the API to collect ink InkCollectorInkOverlay RealTimeStylus (SDK version 1.7)

6 Ink Data and Management Ink is a data type Ink looks good Bezier smoothed Anti-aliased Rich, extensible API Copy to/paste from the clipboard Multiple persistence formats

7 Ink Recognition 10 language recognizers available Provides a full set of recognition results Extensibility architecture allows for custom application recognizers to be built

8 Tablet PC Platform SDK 2 full APIs: COM automation compliant API.NET API Set of controls Provides common functionality Set of components Provides building blocks for platform extension Documentation and samples

9 Object Model Overview InkCollectorInkOverlay Ink Strokes Renderer Tablet Stroke Recognizers Recognizer DrawingAttributes RecognizerContext

10 Hello Ink World

11 Ink Collection Objects

12 InkCollector Top level object for collecting ink Attaches to an HWND Handles input from all attached digitizers and cursors (pens) Intercepts pen/mouse movements and can draw Ink dynamically Three ink collection modes: Ink Only Gesture Only Ink and Gesture Fires events

13 InkOverlay Superset of InkCollector Adds editing modes Ink – “Real-time” inking mode Select – Selection mode Delete – Eraser mode (point or stroke)

14 Ink Collection Events CursorInRange/CursorOutOfRangeNewInAirPacketsCursorDownNewPacketsStrokeGestureSystemGesture Mouse Events

15 Tablet Trivia What’s the difference between InkCollector and InkOverlay? InkOverlay adds editing modes Ink – “Real-time” inking mode Select – Selection mode Delete – Eraser mode (point or stroke)

16 ToDo - Ink Notepad

17 Ink Data Objects

18 Ink Object Container of stroke data Controls all means of persistence Binary stream Clipboard Can be extended using the ExtendedProperties property

19 Stroke Object Represents a single ink stroke Set of data captured in a single pen down, move and pen up sequence ExtendedProperties – allows application to store any data on the stroke DrawingAttributes – controls the rendering of the stroke Rich API Points, Bezier Points, BoundingBox, PacketData

20 Strokes Collection Represents a collection of references to stroke objects Useful for grouping related strokes together: By metadata – for filtering For recognition – RecognizerContext takes strokes collection for recognition

21 DrawingAttributes Controls the appearance of ink Color, width, transparency, smoothing, anti-aliasing PenTip – round, rectangular, height, width Can be scaled automatically using Renderer.Scale Each InkCollector/InkOverlay has a DefaultDrawingAttributes property that specifies the drawing attributes for all cursors Can be applied to a single stroke, to a strokes collection, or to a cursor (pen)

22 Renderer Two coordinate systems on a Tablet PC Screen coordinates Digitizer coordinates Renderer object enables: Mapping between digitizer and screen Drawing Ink to a device context Manipulating Ink rendering Object and View transforms supported Helper methods: Scale, Move, Rotate

23 Clipboard Support Use the Ink APIs to cut or copy multiple formats to the clipboard ISF – Ink serialized format BitmapMetafile Applications interacting with the clipboard can then choose the best format

24 ToDo - Ink Data Manipulation Demo

25 Tablet Trivia What’s the most important thing to remember about the Strokes collection? Represents a collection of references to Stroke objects

26 Ink Recognition Objects

27 RecognizerContext Is the instantiation of a given recognizer Allows recognition of a collection of strokes Synchronous recognition Asynchronous recognition

28 Enumerating Recognizers installed

29 RecognitionResult Has lattice structure with rich recognition results Provides access to paths through the RecognitionAlternates Can be stored on the strokes that created it

30 ToDo – Recognizing Ink

31 Tablet Trivia What did I warn you not to do in my reco demo that I did? New up a RecoContext without it iterating over recognizers

32 Additional Features in the Tablet SDK Version 1.7

33 Context What is Context? Context is the ability to constrain the set of information used for recognition Context can greatly improve recognition accuracy Context can be applied in many ways Lists of words Types of expected text URL, Address, Number, etc. Where do you see Context? Microsoft Internet Explorer Address bar Any other application that enables context Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 To: line

34 Enabling Context New applications InputScope API (New Win32 API) See Tablet PC developer center whitepaper for.NET support Existing applications Context Tagging tool

35 Context Tagging Demo

36 Tablet Trivia What is Context? Why use it? Context is the ability to constrain the set of information used for recognition Context can greatly improve recognition accuracy

37 Web Support Support for Windows Forms controls hosted in HTML Allows you to ink in a control on a web page Support for Single Click Deployment.NET application hosted in the Internet Explorer application domain

38 Real Time Input Features RealTimeStylus Object Model that provides direct access to stylus input even before it is rendered Allows for the creation of new Real Time components Custom dynamic rendering, gesture recognition, disabled regions, etc. Allows for the creation new Ink Collection components Build your own InkOverlay or InkCollector

39 Development Environment The SDK can be installed on Tablet or Non-Tablet devices Windows 2000 SP4 and above External HID compatible digitizer or mouse can simulate tablet digitizer Tablet OS available through MSDN Install on a desktop or laptop for development purposes The Recognizer Pack can be used for development purposes as well

40 Distributing Tablet Applications Redistributable Merge Module MSM files for all parts of the tablet platform except recognition Application deployment considerations Recognition may be used only on the Tablet OS Controls are designed to collect ink only on the Tablet OS Input Panel usage will only work only on the Tablet OS No support for the Win9x Platform

41 Tablet Trivia Must you have a TabletPC to write tablet apps? No!
