Geometry.GetArea Method (Double, ToleranceType)
Gets the area, within the specified tolerance, of the filled region of the Geometry object.
Assembly: PresentationCore (in PresentationCore.dll)
'Declaration Public Overridable Function GetArea ( _ tolerance As Double, _ type As ToleranceType _ ) As Double
- Type: System.Double
The maximum bounds on the distance between points in the polygonal approximation of the geometry. Smaller values produce more accurate results but cause slower execution. If tolerance is less than .000001, .000001 is used instead.
Return ValueType: System.Double
The area of the filled region of the geometry.
Some Geometry methods (such as GetArea) produce or use a polygonal approximation of the geometry. The tolerance factor specifies the maximum distance between points in this polygonal approximation. Smaller tolerance values produce better approximations, but require more processing than an approximation with a large tolerance factor.
