Painting on UWP app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are building a UWP app which needs the user to write on top of the content of our app using touch. For e.g it is similar to some teaching app on a big screen, and while teaching he wants to mark on some content etc..

    The features related to painting is exactly similar to the Scenario3 here https://github.com/microsoft/Windows-universal-samples/tree/master/Samples/SimpleInk/cs

    But the only difference is here it writes on InkCanvas. In our case we need to write on top of out content. It can contain different content. So is it possible to put a transparent InkCanvas on top of our other content, so user will see our content, but can paint on the InkCanvas?

    If that is not possible can you please tell me what are the other options we have to implement such feature.

    Here is a example of what we want to do

    NOTE : Posted the same question here also. Not sure which is the correct place to post.

    Thank You.
