IInkCollector::get_Tablet method (msinkaut.h)

Gets either the IInkTablet object to which a cursor belongs or the IInkTablet object that an object or control is currently using to collect input.

This property is read-only.


HRESULT get_Tablet(
  IInkTablet **SingleTablet



Return value



For an object or control that collects ink, this property is valid only when the object or control is collecting ink from just one tablet. Accessing this property for an object or control that is collecting ink from all tablets generates an exception.

Accessing this property within certain message handlers can result in the underlying function being re-entered, causing unexpected results. Take care to avoid a reentrant call when handling any of the following messages: WM_ACTIVATE, WM_ACTIVATEAPP, WM_NCACTIVATE, WM_PAINT; WM_SYSCOMMAND if wParam is set to SC_HOTKEY or SC_TASKLIST; and WM_SYSKEYDOWN (when processing Alt-Tab or Alt-Esc key combinations). This is an issue with single-threaded apartment model applications.
