Metadata properties set to true

In Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), use a space-delimited list of comma-separated x-coordinate and y-coordinate pairs to set this attribute. Use simple notation, that is, x1,y1 x2,y2 ... xn,yn.

The following example shows how to create a Polygon element and set the Points property by using code.


//Add the Polygon Element
myPolygon = new Polygon();
myPolygon.Stroke = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Black;
myPolygon.Fill = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.LightSeaGreen;
myPolygon.StrokeThickness = 2;
myPolygon.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
myPolygon.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;
System.Windows.Point Point1 = new System.Windows.Point(1, 50);
System.Windows.Point Point2 = new System.Windows.Point(10,80);
System.Windows.Point Point3 = new System.Windows.Point(50,50);
PointCollection myPointCollection = new PointCollection();
myPointCollection.Add(Point1);
myPointCollection.Add(Point2);
myPointCollection.Add(Point3);
myPolygon.Points = myPointCollection;
myGrid.Children.Add(myPolygon);

How to: Draw a Closed Shape by Using the Polygon ElementThis example shows how to draw a closed shape by using the Polygon element. To draw a closed shape, create a Polygon element and use its Points property to specify the vertices of a shape. A line is automatically drawn that connects the first and last points. Finally, specify a Fill, a Stroke, or both.
