The following example shows how to create a Polyline element and set the Points property by using code.

// Add the Polyline Element
myPolyline = new Polyline();
myPolyline.Stroke = System.Windows.Media.Brushes.SlateGray;
myPolyline.StrokeThickness = 2;
myPolyline.FillRule = FillRule.EvenOdd;
System.Windows.Point Point4 = new System.Windows.Point(1, 50);
System.Windows.Point Point5 = new System.Windows.Point(10, 80);
System.Windows.Point Point6 = new System.Windows.Point(20, 40);
PointCollection myPointCollection2 = new PointCollection();
myPolyline.Points = myPointCollection2;
