Use the EllipseGeometry class with a Path element or a GeometryDrawing to draw an ellipse, or with the Clip property of a UIElement to define an elliptical clip region. The EllipseGeometry class also has many other uses. For more information about EllipseGeometry, see Geometry Overview.

The Ellipse class has a Fill, Stroke, and other rendering properties that EllipseGeometry lacks. The Ellipse class is a FrameworkElement and therefore participates in the layout system; it can be used as the content of any element that supports UIElement children.

The EllipseGeometry class, on the other hand, simply defines the geometry of an ellipse, and cannot render itself. Because of its simplicity, it has a wider range of uses.

An EllipseGeometry is a type of Freezable object and therefore can be frozen to improve performance. For information about Freezable features, such as freezing and cloning, see Freezable Objects Overview.

The following example uses two EllipseGeometry objects to define the contents of a GeometryDrawing. This example produces the following output:
