SweepDirection Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the arc is drawn in the Clockwise or Counterclockwise direction.

Scripting

Property Value

SweepDirection

A value that specifies the direction in which the arc is drawn.

This property is read/write. The default value is Counterclockwise.

Remarks

For an ArcSegment with a given Size, RotationAngle, start point, and end Point, four different arcs are possible. Specifying the IsLargeArc property reduces the number of possible arcs to two: an arc drawn from the start point to the end Point in a Clockwise direction and an arc drawn from the start point to the end point in a Counterclockwise direction.

The following illustrations shows two elliptical arcs that are identical except for their SweepDirection settings.
