UIElement::SnapsToDevicePixels Property

Gets or sets a value that determines whether rendering for this element should use device-specific pixel settings during rendering. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:  System.Windows
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:
property bool SnapsToDevicePixels {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
}
<object SnapsToDevicePixels="bool" .../>

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the element should render in accordance to device pixels; otherwise, false. The default as declared on UIElement is false.

Identifier field

SnapsToDevicePixelsProperty

Metadata properties set to true

None

You can set this property to true on your root element to enable pixel snap rendering throughout the UI. For devices operating at greater than 96 dots per inch (dpi), pixel snap rendering can minimize anti-aliasing visual artifacts in the vicinity of single-unit solid lines.

When inherited by FrameworkElement or any possible derived classes, FrameworkElement overrides the metadata for this dependency property to set the Inherits metadata property to true. What this achieves is that only the outermost element in a subtree needs to specify SnapsToDevicePixels as true, and all child elements of that subtree will then report SnapsToDevicePixels as true and will have the SnapsToDevicePixels visual effect.
