#481 – You Can Draw On an InkCanvas Control with the Mouse

You can use the InkCanvas control to include an area of your user interface that users can draw on, using the mouse or a stylus.

By default, an InkCanvas allows drawing on its surface using the mouse.  Each time that you click and drag with the mouse, you are creating a stroke, which is then stored with the InkCanvas.
