Geometry::GetRenderBounds Method (Pen^)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Returns an axis-aligned rectangle that is exactly large enough to contain the geometry after it has been outlined with the specified Pen.

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

Rect GetRenderBounds(
	Pen^ pen


Type: System.Windows.Media::Pen^

An object that describes the area of the geometry's stroke.

Return Value

Type: System.Windows::Rect

An axis aligned rectangle that is exactly large enough to contain the outlined geometry.

This method uses the default tolerance factor (described by the StandardFlatteningTolerance property) when processing the geometry. To specify your own tolerance factor, use the GetRenderBounds method.

Some Geometry methods (such as GetRenderBounds) 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.
