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
You cannot use methods in XAML.


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);
