The following example shows how to create a element and set its properties by using code. For the complete sample, see WPF Shapes Gallery Sample.
//Add the Path Element myPath = new Path(); myPath.Stroke = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.Black; myPath.Fill = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.MediumSlateBlue; myPath.StrokeThickness = 4; myPath.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left; myPath.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center; EllipseGeometry myEllipseGeometry = new EllipseGeometry(); myEllipseGeometry.Center = new System.Windows.Point(50,50); myEllipseGeometry.RadiusX = 25; myEllipseGeometry.RadiusY = 25; myPath.Data = myEllipseGeometry; myGrid.Children.Add(myPath);
|How to: Create a LineSegment in a PathGeometry||This example shows how to create a line segment. To create a line segment, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and LineSegment classes.|
|How to: Create an Elliptical Arc||This example shows how to draw an elliptical arc. To create an elliptical arc, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and ArcSegment classes.|
|How to: Create a Cubic Bezier Curve||This example shows how to create a cubic Bezier curve. To create a cubic Bezier curve, use the PathGeometry, PathFigure, and BezierSegment classes. To display the resulting geometry, use a element, or use it with a GeometryDrawing or a DrawingContext. In the following examples, a cubic Bezier curve is drawn from (10, 100) to (300, 100). The curve has control points of (100, 0) and (200, 200).|
|How to: Create a Composite Shape||This example shows how to create composite shapes using Geometry objects and display them using a element. In the following example, a LineGeometry, EllipseGeometry, and a RectangleGeometry are used with a GeometryGroup to create a composite shape. The geometries are then drawn using a element.|
|How to: Create a Shape by Using a PathGeometry||This example shows how to create a shape using the PathGeometry class. PathGeometry objects are composed of one or more PathFigure objects; each PathFigure represents a different "figure" or shape. Each PathFigure is itself composed of one or more PathSegment objects, each representing a connected portion of the figure or shape. Segment types include LineSegment, ArcSegment, and BezierSegment.|
|How to: Animate an EllipseGeometry||This example shows how to animate a Geometry within a element. In the following example, a PointAnimation is used to animate the Center of an EllipseGeometry.|
