PathFigure PathFigure PathFigure PathFigure Class


Represents a subsection of a geometry, a single connected series of two-dimensional geometric segments.

This 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).

    <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="4">
                    <PathFigure StartPoint="10,20">
                            <LineSegment Point="100,130"/>
    <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="4" >
                    <PathFigure StartPoint="10,50">
                            <BezierSegment Point1="100,0"
                            <LineSegment Point="400,100" />
                            <ArcSegment Size="50,50" 


PathFigureCollection is a strongly typed collection for PathFigure items. PathFigureCollection is the type used by the PathGeometry.Figures property. In XAML, specify one or more PathFigure elements for this property.

This class is relevant for setting the vector data for either a Path or a PathIcon.

Rather than creating an instance or an object element, you can also define segments and a single PathFigure as part of a vector within the string for a Move and draw commands syntax.


PathFigure() PathFigure() PathFigure() PathFigure()

Initializes a new instance of the PathFigure class.


Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher Dispatcher

Gets the CoreDispatcher that this object is associated with. The CoreDispatcher represents a facility that can access the DependencyObject on the UI thread even if the code is initiated by a non-UI thread.

IsClosed IsClosed IsClosed IsClosed

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether this figure's first and last segments are connected.

IsClosedProperty IsClosedProperty IsClosedProperty IsClosedProperty

Identifies the IsClosed dependency property.

IsFilled IsFilled IsFilled IsFilled

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the contained area of this PathFigure is to be used for hit-testing, rendering, and clipping.

IsFilledProperty IsFilledProperty IsFilledProperty IsFilledProperty

Identifies the IsFilled dependency property.

Segments Segments Segments Segments

Gets or sets the collection of segments that define the shape of this PathFigure object.

SegmentsProperty SegmentsProperty SegmentsProperty SegmentsProperty

Identifies the Segments dependency property.

StartPoint StartPoint StartPoint StartPoint

Gets or sets the Point where the PathFigure begins.

StartPointProperty StartPointProperty StartPointProperty StartPointProperty

Identifies the StartPoint dependency property.


ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty) ClearValue(DependencyProperty)

Clears the local value of a dependency property.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty) GetAnimationBaseValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns any base value established for a dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty) GetValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty) ReadLocalValue(DependencyProperty)

Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set.

RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback) RegisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,DependencyPropertyChangedCallback)

Registers a notification function for listening to changes to a specific DependencyProperty on this DependencyObject instance.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object) SetValue(DependencyProperty,Object)

Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64) UnregisterPropertyChangedCallback(DependencyProperty,Int64)

Cancels a change notification that was previously registered by calling RegisterPropertyChangedCallback.
