Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The screen-space coordinate of the left guard-band clipping region.


The left guard clipping region is the outside of the viewport range in which the device can accept screen coordinates; because the device can accept triangles that are partially or totally off-screen and within the guard band clipping region, the frequency of CPU-intensive clipping calculations can be reduced.

Coordinates that are inside of the guard-band clipping region but outside of the rectangle are automatically clipped.

A viewport is a rectangle that defines how a 3-D scene is rendered into a 2-D window. A viewport also defines an area on a device into which objects are rendered.
