Remarks

A Rectangle cannot support child objects. If you want a rectangular region that contains other objects, you can use a Canvas. You can also use a composite geometry, but in this case you would probably use RectangleGeometry rather than Rectangle. For details about how to create composite geometries, see Silverlight Geometries Overview.

The fill for a Rectangle or any other shape that has a fill area does not have to be a solid color. It can be any Brush, including ImageBrush or VideoBrush.

Examples

The following example shows how to create a Rectangle.

  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">  
                   
  <Rectangle Width="100" Height="100" Fill="Blue" Stroke="Red" 
   Canvas.Top="20" Canvas.Left="20" StrokeThickness="3" />
</Canvas>
