PrimitiveType Enumeration

Defines how vertex data is ordered.

Assembly: Microsoft.Xna.Framework.Graphics (in microsoft.xna.framework.graphics.dll)

public enum PrimitiveType

 Member nameDescription
TriangleListThe data is ordered as a sequence of triangles; each triangle is described by three new vertices. Back-face culling is affected by the current winding-order render state.
TriangleStripThe data is ordered as a sequence of triangles; each triangle is described by two new vertices and one vertex from the previous triangle. The back-face culling flag is flipped automatically on even-numbered triangles.
LineListThe data is ordered as a sequence of line segments; each line segment is described by two new vertices. The count may be any positive integer.
LineStripThe data is ordered as a sequence of line segments; each line segment is described by one new vertex and the last vertex from the previous line seqment. The count may be any positive integer.

A strip is often more efficient than a list because fewer vertices are duplicated.
