Hi, I am developing a note taking application in C#/XAML. I want a user to write anything on canvas with InkManager of "Windows.UI.Input.Inking". Then I want to display it as text onto canvas and then I want to save those recognized text in either text or image format.

I have checked MSDN[^] documentation, but still I am confused how to start. How can I get ink strokes onto canvas and how can I recognize that ? Please anyone can guide me ? I need it ASAP for my app.

I have tried some coding, but it is not working.

private async void Recognize_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    IReadOnlyList<InkRecognitionResult> x = await _inkManager.RecognizeAsync(InkRecognitionTarget.All);
    IReadOnlyList<String> text;
    foreach (InkRecognitionResult i in x)
        text = i.GetTextCandidates();
