Rectangle

Silverlight

Draws a rectangle shape, which can have a stroke and a fill.

<Rectangle   .../>

A Rectangle object cannot support child objects. If you want a rectangular region that contains other objects, you can use a Canvas object. You can also use a composite geometry, but in this case you would probably use RectangleGeometry rather than Rectangle.

The fill for a Rectangle or any other shape that has a fill area does not have to be a solid color. It can be any Brush object, including ImageBrush or VideoBrush.

The following example shows how to create a Rectangle object.

<Canvas 
  xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" 
  xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml">  
     
  <Rectangle Width="100" Height="100" Fill="Blue" Stroke="Red" 
   Canvas.Top="20" Canvas.Left="20" StrokeThickness="3" />

</Canvas>
