PathFigure Class

Represents a subsection of a geometry, a single connected series of two-dimensional geometric segments.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

[ContentPropertyAttribute("Segments", true)]
public sealed class PathFigure : DependencyObject
<PathFigure .../>
-or-
<PathFigure ...>
  oneOrMorePathSegments
</PathFigure

XAML Values

oneOrMorePathSegments

One or more object elements that derive from PathSegment: typically these are ArcSegment, BezierSegment, LineSegment, PolyBezierSegment, PolyQuadraticBezierSegment, or QuadraticBezierSegment. Object elements defined here become members of the PathSegmentCollection when code accesses the Segments property at run time.

The PathFigure type exposes the following members.

The defining property of a PathFigure is its StartPoint, because it specifies the point from which the first contained line segment starts.

If you want a geometry where various figures are not connected to one another, you would specify multiple PathFigure objects within the PathFigureCollection, each with different StartPoint values.

The following example creates a simple PathGeometry made up of a single PathFigure with a LineSegment and displays it using a Path element. The PathFigure object's StartPoint is set to 10,20 and a LineSegment is defined with an end point of 100,130. The following illustration shows the PathGeometry created by this example.

This example uses multiple segments in a PathFigure.
