Geometry.GetOutlinedPathGeometry Method (Double, ToleranceType)

 

Gets a PathGeometry, within the specified tolerance, that is a simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)

<SecurityCriticalAttribute>
Public Overridable Function GetOutlinedPathGeometry (
	tolerance As Double,
	type As ToleranceType
) As PathGeometry

Parameters

tolerance
Type: System.Double

The maximum bounds on the distance between points in the polygonal approximation of the geometry. Smaller values produce more accurate results but cause slower execution. If tolerance is less than .000001, .000001 is used instead.

type
Type: System.Windows.Media.ToleranceType

One of the ToleranceType values that specifies whether the tolerance factor is an absolute value or relative to the area of the geometry.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.PathGeometry

A simplified outline of the filled region of the Geometry.

Some Geometry methods (such as GetOutlinedPathGeometry) produce or use a polygonal approximation of the geometry. The tolerance factor specifies the maximum distance between points in this polygonal approximation. Smaller tolerance values produce better approximations, but require more processing than an approximation with a large tolerance factor.
