The Path object can draw closed or open shapes, multiple shapes, and even curved shapes.

Unlike the Line and Polyline objects, you can use this object to draw curves. See the Data property for a description of the shapes that the Path element supports.

The following example shows how to create a Path element and set its properties by using code.


//Add the Path Element
myPath = new Path();
myPath.Stroke = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Black;
myPath.Fill = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.MediumSlateBlue;
myPath.StrokeThickness = 4;
myPath.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
myPath.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;
EllipseGeometry myEllipseGeometry = new EllipseGeometry();
myEllipseGeometry.Center = new System.Windows.Point(50,50);
myEllipseGeometry.RadiusX = 25;
myEllipseGeometry.RadiusY = 25;
myPath.Data = myEllipseGeometry;
myGrid.Children.Add(myPath);

How to: Create a LineSegment in a PathGeometryThis example shows how to create a line segment. To create a line segment, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and LineSegment classes.
How to: Create an Elliptical ArcThis example shows how to draw an elliptical arc. To create an elliptical arc, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and ArcSegment classes.
How to: Create a Cubic Bezier CurveThis example shows how to create a cubic Bezier curve. To create a cubic Bezier curve, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and BezierSegment classes. To display the resulting geometry, use a Path element, or use it with a GeometryDrawing or a DrawingContext. In the following examples, a cubic Bezier curve is drawn from (10, 100) to (300, 100). The curve has control points of (100, 0) and (200, 200).
How to: Create a Composite Shape This example shows how to create composite shapes using Geometry objects and display them using a Path element. In the following example, a LineGeometry, EllipseGeometry, and a RectangleGeometry are used with a GeometryGroup to create a composite shape. The geometries are then drawn using a Path element.
How to: Create a Shape by Using a PathGeometryThis 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.
How to: Animate an EllipseGeometryThis example shows how to animate a Geometry within a Path element. In the following example, a PointAnimation is used to animate the Center of an EllipseGeometry.
