Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the arc should be greater than 180 degrees. This is a dependency property.

For most arcs of a particular position, size, and rotation, there are four different arcs that can be drawn; the and SweepDirection properties indicate which arc to use.
Of the four candidate arc sweeps, two represent large arcs with sweeps of 180 degrees or greater, and two represent smaller arcs with sweeps 180 degrees or less. If is true, then one of the two larger arc sweeps is chosen; otherwise, if is false, one of the smaller arc sweeps is chosen. The remaining two arc candidates are each drawn in a different direction: Counterclockwise or Clockwise. The SweepDirection property specifies which one to use.
The following illustration shows two elliptical arcs that are identical except for their settings.
In the following examples, an elliptical arc is drawn from (10,100) to (200,100). The arc has a Size of 100 by 50 device-independent pixels, a RotationAngle of 45 degrees, an setting of true, and a SweepDirection of Counterclockwise.xaml
In Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), you can use attribute syntax to describe a path.
In XAML, you can also draw an elliptical arc by explicitly using object tags. The following is equivalent to the preceding XAML markup.
<Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1"> <Path.Data> <PathGeometry> <PathGeometry.Figures> <PathFigureCollection> <PathFigure StartPoint="10,100"> <PathFigure.Segments> <PathSegmentCollection> <ArcSegment Size="100,50" RotationAngle="45" IsLargeArc="True" SweepDirection="CounterClockwise" Point="200,100" /> </PathSegmentCollection> </PathFigure.Segments> </PathFigure> </PathFigureCollection> </PathGeometry.Figures> </PathGeometry> </Path.Data> </Path>
