public ref class Polygon sealed : public Shape

This object is similar to the Polyline object, except that this object must be a closed shape.

The following example shows how to create a Polygon element and set its properties by using code. For the complete sample, see WPF Shapes Gallery Sample.

//Add the Polygon Element
myPolygon = gcnew Polygon();
myPolygon->Stroke = Brushes::Black;
myPolygon->Fill = Brushes::LightSeaGreen;
myPolygon->StrokeThickness = 2;
myPolygon->HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
myPolygon->VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment::Center;
Point Point1 = Point(1, 50);
Point Point2 = Point(10, 80);
Point Point3 = Point(50, 50);
PointCollection^ myPointCollection = gcnew PointCollection();
myPointCollection->Add(Point1);
myPointCollection->Add(Point2);
myPointCollection->Add(Point3);
myPolygon->Points = myPointCollection;
myGrid->Children->Add(myPolygon);

How to: Draw a Closed Shape by Using the Polygon Element This example shows how to draw a closed shape by using the Polygon element. To draw a closed shape, create a Polygon element and use its Points property to specify the vertices of a shape. A line is automatically drawn that connects the first and last points. Finally, specify a Fill, a Stroke, or both.
