Represents the geometry for a shape or connector.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Sdk.Diagrams (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.Sdk.Diagrams.dll)
This class and its derivatives deal with operations and calculations associated with the outline of the shape. There is a subclass for each of the major kinds of shape, such as ImageShapeGeometry, CompartmentShapeGeometry, and LinkShapeGeometry. By default, your shape or connector class is associated with one of these standard geometry classes.
To override functions of ShapeGeometry:
Create your own class derived from one of the standard subclasses of . Do not add state variables to this class.
In your shape class, override the ShapeGeometry property to return an instance of your ShapeGeometry subclass.
ShapeGeometry is a lightweight class – it has no state, so that you can share an instance between all the instances of a shape class.
