SpotLight.InnerConeAngle Property

Gets or sets an angle that specifies the proportion of a SpotLight's cone-shaped projection in which the light fully illuminates objects in the scene.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media.Media3D
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation, http://schemas.microsoft.com/netfx/2007/xaml/presentation

public double InnerConeAngle { get; set; }
<object InnerConeAngle="double" .../>

Property Value

Type: System.Double
The angle in degrees that specifies the proportion of a SpotLight's cone-shaped projection in which the light fully illuminates objects in the scene. The default value is 180.

Identifier field

InnerConeAngleProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

The intensity of the SpotLight's illumination diminishes from full illumination to none in that angle of the light's projection between the InnerConeAngle and the OuterConeAngle.

The following example shows how to create a SpotLight in a 3-D scene.

<!-- A SpotLight is used to light the scene. The InnerConeAngle and OuterConeAngle are used
     to control the size of the light cone created by the SpotLight. The Direction and Position
     properties determine where the SpotLight is pointing in the scene. In this example, the Position
     of the SpotLight is set so that the SpotLight is only illuminating the upper right-hand corner
     of the 3D object. -->
<ModelVisual3D>
  <ModelVisual3D.Content>
    <SpotLight x:Name="mySpotLight" InnerConeAngle="20" OuterConeAngle="20" Color="#FFFFFF" Direction="0,0,-1" 
      Position="1,1,6" Range="20"/>
  </ModelVisual3D.Content>
</ModelVisual3D>
