Property Value

A value of NaN (equivalent to an attribute value of "Auto") causes the marker offset to be determined automatically.

The default value is NaN.

<object MarkerOffset="double"/>
- or -
<object MarkerOffset="qualifiedDouble"/>
- or -
<object MarkerOffset="Auto"/>


String representation of a Double value equal to or greater than 0.0 but smaller than PositiveInfinity. An unqualified value is measured in device independent pixels. Strings need not explicitly include decimal points.


A double value as described above, (excepting Auto) followed by one of the following unit specifiers: px, in, cm, pt.

px (default) is device-independent units (1/96th inch per unit)

in is inches; 1in==96px

cm is centimeters; 1cm==(96/2.54) px

pt is points; 1pt==(96/72) px


Causes the marker offset to be determined automatically from the current font characteristics. Equivalent to a property value of NaN.
