XAML Values

  • oneOrMorePathFigures
    One or more PathFigure object elements. Object elements defined here become members of the PathFigureCollection collection when code accesses the Figures property at run time.

The PathGeometry type exposes the following members.

Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ClearValue Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone 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.)

Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone GetValue Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ReadLocalValue Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone SetValue Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSupported by Silverlight for Windows Phone ToString Returns a string representation of this PathGeometry. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Remarks

Each PathGeometry object defines a collection of PathFigure objects. Each of the PathFigure objects is composed of one or more PathSegment objects, such as ArcSegment and LineSegment, which actually define their shape.

The filled area of the PathGeometry is defined by taking all of the contained PathFigure objects that have their IsFilled property set to true and applying the FillRule to determine the enclosed area.
