Overview

Programmer's Guide to Pen Services for Microsoft Windows 95 explains how to create applications that use the Microsoft Windows 95 Pen Application Programming Interface (API). Among other features, Microsoft pen services provide the ability to collect data from a pen tablet and then recognize the data as text, or render the pen data as "ink", which can be stored and displayed. Although the full implementation of Microsoft pen services is required on any PC that collects, recognizes, or stores the pen data, every PC running Microsoft Windows 95 contains a subset of pen services that allow stored ink to be displayed. The first section of Programmer's Guide to Pen Services for Microsoft Windows 95 provides an overview of pen-based computing that describes the architecture and components of the Pen API, supplemented with sample code. The second section is a complete reference to Pen API functions, structures, messages, and constants. Also included is a glossary of terminology specific to pen-based computing.
