Represents the geometry of a circle or ellipse.

Public NotInheritable Class EllipseGeometry _ Inherits Geometry
public sealed class EllipseGeometry : Geometry
The EllipseGeometry type exposes the following members.
|EllipseGeometry||Initializes a new instance of the EllipseGeometry class.|
|Bounds||Gets a Rect that specifies the axis-aligned bounding box of the Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)|
|Center||Gets or sets the center point of the EllipseGeometry.|
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|RadiusX||Gets or sets the x-radius value of the EllipseGeometry.|
|RadiusY||Gets or sets the y-radius value of the EllipseGeometry.|
|Transform||Gets or sets the Transform object applied to a Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)|
|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.)|
|CenterProperty||Identifies the Center dependency property.|
|RadiusXProperty||Identifies the RadiusX dependency property.|
|RadiusYProperty||Identifies the RadiusY dependency property.|
Geometries can be used individually or in combination to declare the data for a Path.
EllipseGeometry Compared to Ellipse
The EllipseGeometry class simply defines the geometry of an ellipse, and cannot render itself. Because of its simplicity, it has a wider range of uses.
The following example shows how to create an ellipse using EllipseGeometry.
<Canvas> <Path Fill="Gold" Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1"> <Path.Data> <EllipseGeometry Center="50,50" RadiusX="50" RadiusY="50" /> </Path.Data> </Path> </Canvas>
The following illustration shows the output from the example.
