# Geometry.GetOutlinedPathGeometry Method

## Definition

Gets a PathGeometry that is a simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

## Overloads

GetOutlinedPathGeometry(Double, ToleranceType) |
Gets a PathGeometry, within the specified tolerance, that is a simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry. |

GetOutlinedPathGeometry() |
Gets a PathGeometry that is a simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry. |

## GetOutlinedPathGeometry(Double, ToleranceType)

Gets a PathGeometry, within the specified tolerance, that is a simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

```
public:
virtual System::Windows::Media::PathGeometry ^ GetOutlinedPathGeometry(double tolerance, System::Windows::Media::ToleranceType type);
```

```
[System.Security.SecurityCritical]
public virtual System.Windows.Media.PathGeometry GetOutlinedPathGeometry (double tolerance, System.Windows.Media.ToleranceType type);
```

```
abstract member GetOutlinedPathGeometry : double * System.Windows.Media.ToleranceType -> System.Windows.Media.PathGeometry
override this.GetOutlinedPathGeometry : double * System.Windows.Media.ToleranceType -> System.Windows.Media.PathGeometry
```

`Public Overridable Function GetOutlinedPathGeometry (tolerance As Double, type As ToleranceType) As PathGeometry`

#### Parameters

- tolerance
- Double

The maximum bounds on the distance between points in the polygonal approximation of the geometry. Smaller values produce more accurate results but cause slower execution. If `tolerance`

is less than .000001, .000001 is used instead.

- type
- ToleranceType

One of the ToleranceType values that specifies whether the tolerance factor is an absolute value or relative to the area of the geometry.

#### Returns

A simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

- Attributes

### Remarks

Some Geometry methods (such as GetOutlinedPathGeometry) produce or use a polygonal approximation of the geometry. The tolerance factor specifies the maximum distance between points in this polygonal approximation. Smaller tolerance values produce better approximations, but require more processing than an approximation with a large tolerance factor.

## GetOutlinedPathGeometry()

Gets a PathGeometry that is a simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

```
public:
System::Windows::Media::PathGeometry ^ GetOutlinedPathGeometry();
```

`public System.Windows.Media.PathGeometry GetOutlinedPathGeometry ();`

`member this.GetOutlinedPathGeometry : unit -> System.Windows.Media.PathGeometry`

`Public Function GetOutlinedPathGeometry () As PathGeometry`

#### Returns

A simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

### Remarks

This method uses the default tolerance factor (described by the StandardFlatteningTolerance property) when processing the geometry. To specify your own tolerance factor, use the GetOutlinedPathGeometry method.

Some Geometry methods (such as GetOutlinedPathGeometry) produce or use a polygonal approximation of the geometry. The tolerance factor specifies the maximum distance between points in this polygonal approximation. Smaller tolerance values produce better approximations, but require more processing than an approximation with a large tolerance factor.
