The LineGeometry type exposes the following members.


Name Description
LineGeometry Initializes a new instance of the LineGeometry class that has no length.



Name Description
Bounds Gets a Rect that specifies the axis-aligned bounding box of the Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)
Dispatcher Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
EndPoint Gets or sets the end point of a line.
StartPoint Gets or sets the start point of the line.
Transform Gets or sets the Transform object applied to a Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)



Name Description
CheckAccess Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
ClearValue Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
GetAnimationBaseValue Returns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
GetValue Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
ReadLocalValue Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
SetValue Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



Name Description
EndPointProperty Identifies the EndPoint dependency property.
StartPointProperty Identifies the StartPoint dependency property.



To create multiple connected lines, use a LineSegment or Polyline segment with the PathFigure and PathGeometry classes.


The following example shows how to create and render a LineGeometry object. A Geometry object only defines the geometry of the object—it does not render anything directly—so the example uses a Path shape to render the line. Because a line has no area, setting the Fill property of the Path would have no effect; instead, only the Stroke and StrokeThickness properties are specified. The following illustration shows the output from the example.

A LineGeometry drawn from (10,20) to (100,130)

<Canvas Width="200" Height="200">
  <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1" >
      <LineGeometry StartPoint="10,20" EndPoint="100,130" />
