ShapeGeometry.GetPath Method (RectangleD)


Gets the path around the shape geometry.

Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Diagrams
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Sdk.Diagrams.12.0 (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Sdk.Diagrams.12.0.dll)

protected virtual GraphicsPath GetPath(
	RectangleD boundingBox


Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Diagrams.RectangleD

The bounding box for the shape or link, relative to the top-left corner of the shape’s parent.

Return Value

Type: System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath

The path around the shape geometry.

This property returns a reference to the path used by this geometry. Do not dispose it. Use the path before using GetPath() again. If you require a copy, use GetPathCopy.

This example is for a circular shape. Notice that UninitializedPath is used and reset.
