RenderOptions.SetEdgeMode Method

Sets the value of the EdgeMode attached property on a specified dependency object.

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

public static void SetEdgeMode(
	DependencyObject target,
	EdgeMode edgeMode


Type: System.Windows.DependencyObject
The dependency object on which to set the value of the EdgeMode property
Type: System.Windows.Media.EdgeMode
The new value to set the property to.


The specified target is null.

Text objects are always displayed with anti-aliasing, and are unaffected by setting the edge mode value. When you set the edge mode value of a visual object, all the descendant drawing primitives of the visual object are set to the same edge mode value.

The following example shows how to use the SetEdgeMode method to set the edge mode for a visual object to Aliased.

// Set the edge mode to aliased for the visual and any descendant drawing primitives it has.
RenderOptions.SetEdgeMode((DependencyObject)myVisual, EdgeMode.Aliased);
