LineSegment Class

July 28, 2014

Represents a line drawn between two points, which can be part of a PathFigure within Path data.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

public sealed class LineSegment : PathSegment
<LineSegment .../>

The LineSegment type exposes the following members.

Public methodLineSegmentInitializes a new instance of the LineSegment class.

Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyPointGets or sets the end point of the line segment.

Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValueClears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValueSets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Public fieldStatic memberPointPropertyIdentifies the Point dependency property.

Use a PathFigure object to create composite shapes using LineSegment objects and other segments.

The LineSegment class does not contain a property for the starting point of the line. The starting point of the line is the end point of the previous segment, or the StartPoint of the PathFigure if no other segments exist.

The simple shape of a line can also be generated using Line. LineSegment is particularly intended for drawing a line within what is typically a more complex geometry group.

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.

Diagonal line.

  <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1">
          <PathFigure StartPoint="10,20">
              <LineSegment Point="100,130"/>
