  NameDescription
Public methodApplyAnimationClock(DependencyProperty, AnimationClock)Applies an AnimationClock to the specified DependencyProperty. If the property is already animated, the SnapshotAndReplace handoff behavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodApplyAnimationClock(DependencyProperty, AnimationClock, HandoffBehavior)Applies an AnimationClock to the specified DependencyProperty. If the property is already animated, the specified HandoffBehavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodBeginAnimation(DependencyProperty, AnimationTimeline)Applies an animation to the specified DependencyProperty. The animation is started when the next frame is rendered. If the specified property is already animated, the SnapshotAndReplace handoff behavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodBeginAnimation(DependencyProperty, AnimationTimeline, HandoffBehavior)Applies an animation to the specified DependencyProperty. The animation is started when the next frame is rendered. If the specified property is already animated, the specified HandoffBehavior is used. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)
Public methodClearValue(DependencyProperty)Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValue(DependencyPropertyKey)Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodCloneCreates a modifiable copy of this LineSegment by making deep copies of its values.
Protected methodCloneCoreMakes the instance a clone (deep copy) of the specified Freezable using base (non-animated) property values. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodCloneCurrentValueCreates a modifiable copy of this LineSegment object by making deep copies of its values. This method does not copy resource references, data bindings, or animations, although it does copy their current values.
Protected methodCloneCurrentValueCoreMakes the instance a modifiable clone (deep copy) of the specified Freezable using current property values. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodCoerceValueCoerces the value of the specified dependency property. This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodCreateInstanceInitializes a new instance of the Freezable class. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodCreateInstanceCoreWhen implemented in a derived class, creates a new instance of the Freezable derived class. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodEqualsDetermines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFreeze()Makes the current object unmodifiable and sets its IsFrozen property to true. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodFreezeCoreMakes this Animatable object unmodifiable or determines whether it can be made unmodifiable. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns the non-animated value of the specified DependencyProperty. (Inherited from Animatable.)
Public methodGetAsFrozenCreates a frozen copy of the Freezable, using base (non-animated) property values. Because the copy is frozen, any frozen sub-objects are copied by reference. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodGetAsFrozenCoreMakes the instance a frozen clone of the specified Freezable using base (non-animated) property values. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodGetCurrentValueAsFrozenCreates a frozen copy of the Freezable using current property values. Because the copy is frozen, any frozen sub-objects are copied by reference. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodGetCurrentValueAsFrozenCoreMakes the current instance a frozen clone of the specified Freezable. If the object has animated dependency properties, their current animated values are copied. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodGetHashCodeGets a hash code for this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetLocalValueEnumeratorCreates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property on this instance of a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodInvalidatePropertyRe-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOnChangedCalled when the current Freezable object is modified. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodOnFreezablePropertyChanged(DependencyObject, DependencyObject)Ensures that appropriate context pointers are established for a DependencyObjectType data member that has just been set. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodOnFreezablePropertyChanged(DependencyObject, DependencyObject, DependencyProperty)This member supports the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodOnPropertyChangedOverrides the DependencyObject implementation of OnPropertyChanged to also invoke any Changed handlers in response to a changing dependency property of type Freezable. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if it exists. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodReadPreambleEnsures that the Freezable is being accessed from a valid thread. Inheritors of Freezable must call this method at the beginning of any API that reads data members that are not dependency properties. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Public methodSetCurrentValueSets the value of a dependency property without changing its value source. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)Sets the local value of a dependency property, specified by its dependency property identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValue(DependencyPropertyKey, Object)Sets the local value of a read-only dependency property, specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodShouldSerializePropertyReturns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodVerifyAccessEnforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)
Protected methodWritePostscriptRaises the Changed event for the Freezable and invokes its OnChanged method. Classes that derive from Freezable should call this method at the end of any API that modifies class members that are not stored as dependency properties. (Inherited from Freezable.)
Protected methodWritePreambleVerifies that the Freezable is not frozen and that it is being accessed from a valid threading context. Freezable inheritors should call this method at the beginning of any API that writes to data members that are not dependency properties. (Inherited from Freezable.)

Use a PathFigure object to create composite shapes using LineSegment objects and other segments.

The LineSegment class does not contain a property for the starting point of the line. The starting point of the line is the end point of the previous segment, or the StartPoint of the PathFigure if no other segments exist.

Freezable Features: Because LineSegment objects inherit from the Freezable class, they provide several special features: they can be declared as resources, shared among multiple objects, made read-only to improve performance, cloned, and made thread-safe. For more information about the different features that are provided by Freezable objects, see Freezable Objects Overview.

This example shows how to create a line segment. To create a line segment, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and LineSegment classes.

The following examples draw a LineSegment from (10, 50) to (200, 70). The following illustration shows the resulting LineSegment; a grid background was added to show the coordinate system.

A LineSegment drawn from (10,50) to (200,700)

A LineSegment in a PathFigure

[xaml]

In Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), you may use attribute syntax to describe a path.


<Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1"  
  Data="M 10,50 L 200,70" />


[xaml]

(Note that this attribute syntax actually creates a StreamGeometry, a lighter-weight version of a PathGeometry. For more information, see the Path Markup Syntax page.)

In XAML, you may also draw a line segment by using object element syntax. The following is equivalent to the previous XAML example.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

<Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1">
  <Path.Data>
    <PathGeometry>
      <PathFigure StartPoint="10,50">
        <LineSegment Point="200,70" />
      </PathFigure>
    </PathGeometry>
  </Path.Data>
</Path>
