Property Value

Type: System.Double
The limit on the ratio of the miter length to the StrokeThickness of a Shape element. This value is always a positive number that is greater than or equal to 1.


Dependency property identifier field: StrokeMiterLimitProperty

A miter forms a corner by beveling the ends of two joined lines. When two line segments meet at a small angle (sharp angle), the miter may extend beyond the thickness of the line that strokes the path.

Generally you should use integral numeric values for this property. Nonintegral values can cause subpixel rendering, and may alter the apparent color of the stroke.
