Points Property (Polygon)
Gets or sets the vertex points of the polygon.
<object Points="pointSet" .../>
object.Points = "pointSet"
The set of points that define the vertex points of the polygon, as a delimited string that represents a point set. See pointSet Grammar section.
This property is write-only.
|X, Y||A pair of double values that identify the x,y initial point of the polygon.|
|X*,Y*||Subsequent pairs of double values that define additional points of this object.|
- The  characters are not literals, they are indicators of optional values. The * indicates that any number of points is permitted past the initial X,Y.
- The separator in this grammar can be either a space or a comma. You can use a mixture of space and comma as separators. The common convention is to use commas between the X and Y and spaces between the points.
- Any odd number of double values in a Points value / set of points is illegal and will throw either a parser or runtime error. The number of double values in the string must always be even so that it evaluates as x,y pairs of points.
A set of points is defined through a string syntax, enabled by an underlying type converter. There is no object available in the object model for accessing the set of points as a collection. In either script or XAML, Points is write-only; attempting to get the value in script will result in a runtime GetValue error. You set the value by specifying a string. Without a collection object, there is no means in the object model to obtain a count, although you could parse the string yourself and count separators or otherwise get a count before you pass the string as input.
As an example of the PointSet grammar, the string "0,0,100,0,0,100" would produce a right triangle with its right angle placed at 0,0.
A single point, such as (0,0), is a valid value, but will not render anything because you need a minimum of two points to produce a rendered output.
