Describes a geometry using drawing commands. This class is used with the StreamGeometry class to create a lightweight geometry that does not support data binding, animation, or modification.
Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|ArcTo||Draws an arc to the specified point.|
|BeginFigure||Specifies the starting point for a new figure.|
|BezierTo||Draws a Bezier curve to the specified point.|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)|
|Close||Closes this context and flushes its content so that it can be rendered.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|LineTo||Draws a straight line to the specified Point.|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|PolyBezierTo||Draws one or more connected Bezier curves.|
|PolyLineTo||Draws one or more connected straight lines.|
|PolyQuadraticBezierTo||Draws one or more connected quadratic Bezier curves.|
|QuadraticBezierTo||Draws a quadratic Bezier curve.|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|VerifyAccess||Enforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)|
StreamGeometry is light-weight alternative to PathGeometry for creating geometric shapes. Use a StreamGeometry when you need to describe a complex geometry but do not want the overhead of supporting data binding, animation, or modification. For example, because of its efficiency, the StreamGeometry class is a good choice for describing adorners.
The following example uses attribute syntax to create a triangular StreamGeometry in XAML.
The next example creates a method that uses a StreamGeometry and to define a geometric shape based on specified parameters.
