This example shows how use a Pen to outline a shape. To create a simple Pen, you need only specify its Thickness and Brush. You can create more complex pen's by specifying a DashStyle, DashCap, LineJoin, StartLineCap, and EndLineCap.

The following example uses a Pen to outline a shape defined by a GeometryDrawing.

How to: Create a GeometryDrawingThis example shows how to create and display a GeometryDrawing. A GeometryDrawing enables you to create shape with a fill and an outline by associating a Pen and a Brush with a Geometry. The Geometry describes the shape's structure, the Brush describes the shape's fill, and the Pen describes the shape's outline.
How to: Paint an Area with a DrawingThis example shows how to paint an area with a drawing. To paint an area with a drawing, you use a DrawingBrush and one or more Drawing objects. The following example uses a DrawingBrush to paint an object with a drawing of two ellipses.
