Path.Data Path.Data Path.Data Path.Data Property

Definition

Gets or sets a Geometry that specifies the shape to be drawn.

public:
 property System::Windows::Media::Geometry ^ Data { System::Windows::Media::Geometry ^ get(); void set(System::Windows::Media::Geometry ^ value); };
public System.Windows.Media.Geometry Data { get; set; }
member this.Data : System.Windows.Media.Geometry with get, set
Public Property Data As Geometry

Property Value

A description of the shape to be drawn.

Examples

The following example shows how to create a Path element and set the Data property by using code.


//Add the Path Element
myPath = gcnew Path();
myPath->Stroke = Brushes::Black;
myPath->Fill = Brushes::MediumSlateBlue;
myPath->StrokeThickness = 4;
myPath->HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
myPath->VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment::Center;
EllipseGeometry^ myEllipseGeometry = gcnew EllipseGeometry();
myEllipseGeometry->Center = Point(50, 50);
myEllipseGeometry->RadiusX = 25;
myEllipseGeometry->RadiusY = 25;
myPath->Data = myEllipseGeometry;
myGrid->Children->Add(myPath);

//Add the Path Element
myPath = new Path();
myPath.Stroke = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Black;
myPath.Fill = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.MediumSlateBlue;
myPath.StrokeThickness = 4;
myPath.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
myPath.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;
EllipseGeometry myEllipseGeometry = new EllipseGeometry();
myEllipseGeometry.Center = new System.Windows.Point(50,50);
myEllipseGeometry.RadiusX = 25;
myEllipseGeometry.RadiusY = 25;
myPath.Data = myEllipseGeometry;
myGrid.Children.Add(myPath);

' Add a Path Element
Dim myPath As New Path()
myPath.Stroke = Brushes.Black
myPath.Fill = Brushes.MediumSlateBlue
myPath.StrokeThickness = 4
myPath.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left
myPath.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center
Dim myEllipseGeometry As New EllipseGeometry()
myEllipseGeometry.Center = New System.Windows.Point(50, 50)
myEllipseGeometry.RadiusX = 25
myEllipseGeometry.RadiusY = 25
myPath.Data = myEllipseGeometry
myGrid.Children.Add(myPath)

Remarks

To draw simple shapes, use the EllipseGeometry, LineGeometry, and RectangleGeometry objects. To draw curves, arcs, or complex shapes, use the PathGeometry object. To create a composite geometry, use a GeometryGroup. To combine geometries, use a CombinedGeometry.

XAML Property Element Usage

<Path>  
  <Path.Data>  
    singleGeometry  
  </Path.Data>  
</Path>  

XAML Attribute Usage

<object Data="moveAndDrawCommands"/>  

XAML Values

singleGeometry
A single object element that derives from Geometry. This can be one of the following:

moveAndDrawCommands
One or more move and draw commands. For the complete syntax, see Path Markup Syntax.
