RectangleGeometry.RadiusX Property

Gets or sets the x-radius of the ellipse use to round the corners of the rectangle. This is a dependency property.

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

Property Value

Type: System.Double
A value greater than or equal to zero and less than or equal to half the rectangle's width that describes the x-radius of the ellipse use to round the corners of the rectangle. Values greater than half the rectangle's width are treated as though equal to half the rectangle's width. Negative values are treated as positive values. The default is 0.0.

Identifier field

RadiusXProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

For the rectangle to have rounded corners, both the RadiusX and RadiusY properties must be non-zero.

To round the corners of a RectangleGeometry, set its RadiusX and RadiusY properties to a value greater than zero. The larger the values, the rounder the rectangle's corners.

The following example shows several RectangleGeometry objects with different RadiusX and RadiusY settings. The RectangleGeometry objects are displayed using Path elements.
