Represents a composite geometry, composed of other Geometry objects.
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Bounds||Gets a Rect that specifies the axis-aligned bounding box of the Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)|
|Children||Gets or sets the GeometryCollection that contains the objects that define this .|
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|FillRule||Gets or sets how the intersecting areas of the objects contained in this are combined.|
|Transform||Gets or sets the Transform object applied to a Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|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.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
FillRule is relevant for a because the combined geometry can potentially have segment combinations where the application of a fill rule will have an effect.
In XAML usages, uses Children as its content property and supports implicit collection usage. Therefore, to declare transforms that will be in a in XAML, you declare one or more geometries as object elements, placing them in order as the child elements of the . Nesting objects is permitted.
Composite geometry objects can be created using a . The object creates an amalgamation of the Geometry objects it contains without combining their area. Any number of Geometry objects can be added to a . The following example uses a to create a composite geometry.
<Canvas> <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1" Fill="#CCCCFF"> <Path.Data> <!-- Creates a composite shape from three geometries. --> <GeometryGroup FillRule="EvenOdd"> <LineGeometry StartPoint="10,10" EndPoint="50,30" /> <EllipseGeometry Center="40,70" RadiusX="30" RadiusY="30" /> <RectangleGeometry Rect="30,55 100 30" /> </GeometryGroup> </Path.Data> </Path> </Canvas>
The following illustration shows the output of the example.
