Remarks

Use a PathFigure object to store BezierSegment objects and other segments.

A cubic Bezier curve is defined by four points: a start point, an end point (Point3), and two control points (Point1 and Point2). The BezierSegment class does not contain a property for the starting point of the curve; it only defines the end point. The beginning point of the curve is the current point of the PathFigure to which the BezierSegment is added.

The two control points of a cubic Bezier curve behave like magnets, attracting portions of what would otherwise be a straight line toward themselves and producing a curve. The first control point, Point1, affects the beginning portion of the curve; the second control point, Point2, affects the ending portion of the curve. Note that the curve doesn't necessarily pass through either of the control points; each control point moves its portion of the line toward itself, but not through itself.

To specify a Bezier type segment with more control points, see PolyBezierSegment.

Examples

The following example uses a BezierSegment as one of the PathSegment items in a PathGeometry.

<Canvas>
  <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1" >
    <Path.Data>
      <PathGeometry>
        <PathGeometry.Figures>
          <PathFigure StartPoint="10,50">
            <PathFigure.Segments>
              <BezierSegment Point1="100,0"
                Point2="200,200"
                Point3="300,100"/>
              <LineSegment Point="400,100" />
              <ArcSegment Size="50,50" RotationAngle="45"
                IsLargeArc="True" SweepDirection="Clockwise"
                Point="200,100"/>
            </PathFigure.Segments>
          </PathFigure>
        </PathGeometry.Figures>
      </PathGeometry>
    </Path.Data>
  </Path>
