PathFigure.Segments Property

Gets or sets the collection of segments that define the shape of this PathFigure object.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
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 PathSegmentCollection Segments { get; set; }
<object>
    oneOrMorePathSegments
</object>

XAML Values

oneOrMorePathSegments

One or more object elements for objects that derive from PathSegment. Typically these are: ArcSegment,

BezierSegment, LineSegment, PolyBezierSegment, PolyLineSegment, PolyQuadraticBezierSegment, QuadraticBezierSegment.

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.PathSegmentCollection
The collection of segments that define the shape of this PathFigure object. The default value is an empty collection.

Identifier field

Metadata properties set to true

None

This example shows how to create a shape using the PathGeometry class. PathGeometry objects are composed of one or more PathFigure objects; each PathFigure represents a different "figure" or shape. Each PathFigure is itself composed of one or more PathSegment objects, each representing a connected portion of the figure or shape. Segment types include LineSegment, ArcSegment, and BezierSegment.

The following example uses a PathGeometry to create a triangle. The PathGeometry is displayed using a Path element.


<Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1">
  <Path.Data>
    <PathGeometry>
      <PathGeometry.Figures>
        <PathFigureCollection>
          <PathFigure IsClosed="True" StartPoint="10,100">
            <PathFigure.Segments>
              <PathSegmentCollection>
                <LineSegment Point="100,100" />
                <LineSegment Point="100,50" />
              </PathSegmentCollection>
            </PathFigure.Segments>
          </PathFigure>
        </PathFigureCollection>
      </PathGeometry.Figures>
    </PathGeometry>
  </Path.Data>
</Path>


The following illustration shows the shape created in the previous example.

A PathGeometry

The previous example showed how to create a relatively simple shape, a triangle. A PathGeometry can also be used to create more complex shapes, including arcs and curves. For examples, see How to: Create an Elliptical Arc, How to: Create a Cubic Bezier Curve, and How to: Create a Quadratic Bezier Curve.

This example is part of larger sample; for the complete sample, see the Geometries Sample.
