MapPolygon MapPolygon MapPolygon MapPolygon Class


Represents a polygon on a MapControl.

public : sealed class MapPolygon : MapElement
struct winrt::Windows::UI::Xaml::Controls::Maps::MapPolygon : MapElement
public sealed class MapPolygon : MapElement
Public NotInheritable Class MapPolygon Inherits MapElement

Windows 10 requirements

Device family
Windows 10 (introduced v10.0.10240.0)
API contract
Windows.Foundation.UniversalApiContract (introduced v1)


Display pushpins, images, and shapes on the MapControl by adding them to its MapElements collection.

  • Display an image such as a pushpin with optional text by using the MapIcon class. Keep the default image or provide a custom image.
  • Define and display a MapPolygon or a MapPolyline. Alternately, to display XAML elements on the MapControl, add them to its Children collection.

For more info, see Display maps with 2D, 3D, and Streetside views.

MapPolygon() MapPolygon() MapPolygon() MapPolygon()

Initializes a new instance of the MapPolygon 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.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
FillColor FillColor FillColor FillColor

Gets or sets the color used to fill the MapPolygon.

IsEnabled IsEnabled IsEnabled IsEnabled

Indicates whether users can interact with the MapElement.

(Inherited from MapElement)
IsEnabledProperty IsEnabledProperty IsEnabledProperty IsEnabledProperty

Identifies the IsEnabled dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntry MapStyleSheetEntry MapStyleSheetEntry MapStyleSheetEntry

Gets or sets the name of an entry in the map's style sheet that you'd like to apply to this MapElement.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntryProperty MapStyleSheetEntryProperty MapStyleSheetEntryProperty MapStyleSheetEntryProperty

Identifies for the MapStyleSheetEntry dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntryState MapStyleSheetEntryState MapStyleSheetEntryState MapStyleSheetEntryState

Gets or sets the name of the state of this MapElement. If the style sheet defines a style for that state, that style is applied to this element. Values defined in the style sheet for the state override values defined in the MapStyleSheetEntry.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty MapStyleSheetEntryStateProperty

Identifies for the MapStyleSheetEntryState dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapTabIndex MapTabIndex MapTabIndex MapTabIndex

Gets or sets a value that determines the order in which elements of the MapControl receive focus when the user navigates through those elements by pressing the Tab key.

(Inherited from MapElement)
MapTabIndexProperty MapTabIndexProperty MapTabIndexProperty MapTabIndexProperty

Identifies the MapTabIndex dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
Path Path Path Path

Gets or sets the collection of coordinates that define the MapPolygon shape.


In Windows 10, version 1511, we recommend using the Paths property to create simple and complex polygons. Do not use both properties (Paths and Path) at the same time.

PathProperty PathProperty PathProperty PathProperty

Identifies the Path dependency property.

Paths Paths Paths Paths

Gets a list of Geopath objects that define the MapPolygon shape.


In Windows 10, version 1511, we recommend using this property instead of Path to create polygons. Do not use both properties (Paths and Path ) at the same time.

StrokeColor StrokeColor StrokeColor StrokeColor

Gets or sets the color used to draw the MapPolygon.

StrokeDashed StrokeDashed StrokeDashed StrokeDashed

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the line used to draw the MapPolygon is dashed.

StrokeDashedProperty StrokeDashedProperty StrokeDashedProperty StrokeDashedProperty

Identifies the StrokeDashed dependency property.

StrokeThickness StrokeThickness StrokeThickness StrokeThickness

Gets or sets the width of the line used to draw the MapPolygon, in logical pixels.

StrokeThicknessProperty StrokeThicknessProperty StrokeThicknessProperty StrokeThicknessProperty

Identifies the StrokeThickness dependency property.

Tag Tag Tag Tag

Gets or sets an arbitrary object value that can be used to store custom information about this object.

(Inherited from MapElement)
TagProperty TagProperty TagProperty TagProperty

Identifies the Tag dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
Visible Visible Visible Visible

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the MapElement is visible on the MapControl.

(Inherited from MapElement)
VisibleProperty VisibleProperty VisibleProperty VisibleProperty

Identifies the Visible dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)
ZIndex ZIndex ZIndex ZIndex

Gets or sets the z-index of the MapElement. A MapElement with a higher z-index is displayed on top of a MapElement with a lower z-index.

(Inherited from MapElement)
ZIndexProperty ZIndexProperty ZIndexProperty ZIndexProperty

Identifies the ZIndex dependency property.

(Inherited from MapElement)


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.

(Inherited from DependencyObject)
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.
