Hi, Andrew. I want to change the style of the control handle of annotation, including color, size, shape and so on. Forthmore, I want to and a rotating handle, even the control handle of corner radius in BoxAnnotation. Could you give me some suggestions?

Hi Wang,

The AnnotationBase.ResizingGripsStyle property allows you to template the control handles of the annotation.

For example:

<Style x:Key="GripStyle" TargetType="Thumb">
    <Setter Property="Background" Value="Red" />
    <Setter Property="Foreground" Value="Black" />
    <Setter Property="BorderBrush" Value="Purple" />
    <Setter Property="BorderThickness" Value="2" />
    <Setter Property="Width" Value="20" />
    <Setter Property="Height" Value="15" />
    <Setter Property="Template">
                <Ellipse Fill="{TemplateBinding Background}" Stroke="{TemplateBinding Foreground}" />
<s:BoxAnnotation Background="Green"
     ResizingGripsStyle="{StaticResource GripStyle}"
     Y2="7" />

Will change the resizing grip to an ellipse.

Please also see where we have the full control template of the resizing grips if you wish to do further customisation.

Best regards,
