I m developing paint like application for windows 8. I have tried but I can't even developed even a line drawing tool. My application will have free hand tool, line, rectangle, ellipse, circle drawing tool, erasor. I am using canvas tool for drawing.

So please guide me with some coding, please provide me working code.

i have successfully developed my app, you can check Metro Paint[^]

[In response to follow-up discussion:]

So, are you saying you could not find appropriate articles in MSDN? First, how about other than MSDN? What's wrong about this one:[^]?

As to MSDN, please see this:[^].

Look at the section "Rich visuals and media", in particular, this part:[^].

If I really needed it right now and had time, I would stop finding excuses about lack of articles (who needs those excuses? not you) and would start immediately. There is more than enough publications good to start.

Probably a bit late, but you may (or others) find Drawing Library for Modern UI useful, it's a replacement for System.Drawing namespace that draws on top of a Canvas and provides a GDI+ like API.

It doesn't have feature to save as image file.

True, it seems to have the same problem your application has, that XAML elements can't be exported to bitmaps, right now the only one that can do that is Writeable Bitmap Ex.
