Polygon.Points Property

Gets or sets a collection that contains the vertex points of the polygon.

Namespace: System.Windows.Shapes
Assembly: PresentationFramework (in presentationframework.dll)
XML Namespace:

public PointCollection Points { get; set; }
/** @property */
public PointCollection get_Points ()

/** @property */
public void set_Points (PointCollection value)

public function get Points () : PointCollection

public function set Points (value : PointCollection)

    <PointCollection .../>
<object Points="PointCollection" .../>

Property Value

A collection of Point structures that describe the vertex points of the polygon. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

In Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), use a space-delimited list of comma-separated x-coordinate and y-coordinate pairs to set this attribute. Use simple notation, that is, x1,y1 x2,y2 ... xn,yn.

The following example shows how to create a Polygon element and set the Points property by using code. For the complete sample, see Create Shape Elements Using Code Sample.

//Add the Polygon Element
myPolygon = new Polygon();
myPolygon.Stroke = Brushes.Black;
myPolygon.Fill = Brushes.LightSeaGreen;
myPolygon.StrokeThickness = 2;
myPolygon.HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left;
myPolygon.VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center;
Point Point1 = new Point(1, 50);
Point Point2 = new Point(10,80);
Point Point3 = new Point(50,50);
PointCollection myPointCollection = new PointCollection();
myPolygon.Points = myPointCollection;

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.
