LineCap enumeration

Applies to: desktop apps only

The LineCap enumeration specifies the type of graphic shape to use on the end of a line drawn with a Windows GDI+ pen. The cap can be a square, circle, triangle, arrowhead, custom, or masked (hidden). End caps can also "anchor" the line by centering the cap at the end of the line.

LineCapNoAnchor

Specifies that the line ends are not anchored.

LineCapSquareAnchor

Specifies that the line ends are anchored with a square. The center of the square is the last point in the line. The height and width of the square are the line width.
