Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Media.Effects.ShaderRenderMode
A ShaderRenderMode value that indicates whether to force the use of hardware or software rendering for the effect.

By default, a ShaderEffect renders in hardware when there is a capable hardware accelerator; otherwise, it renders in software. The ShaderRenderMode property alters this behavior, based on its value.

If set to HardwareOnly, and there is no capable hardware available, the entire ShaderEffect is ignored.

If set to SoftwareOnly, the ShaderEffect always renders using software rendering.

If set to Auto, the ShaderEffect has the default behavior.
