Remarks

The defining property of a PathFigure is its StartPoint, because it specifies the point from which the first contained line segment starts.

If you want a geometry where various figures are not connected to one another, you would specify multiple PathFigure objects within the PathFigureCollection, each with different StartPoint values.

Examples

The following example creates a simple PathGeometry made up of a single PathFigure with a LineSegment and displays it using a Path element. The PathFigure object's StartPoint is set to 10,20 and a LineSegment is defined with an end point of 100,130. The following illustration shows the PathGeometry created by this example.

This example uses multiple segments in a PathFigure.
