DiffuseMaterial.BrushProperty Field

Identifies the Brush dependency property.

Namespace: System.Windows.Media.Media3D
Assembly: PresentationCore (in presentationcore.dll)

public static readonly DependencyProperty BrushProperty
public static final DependencyProperty BrushProperty
public static final var BrushProperty : DependencyProperty
You cannot use fields in XAML.

Field Value

The DiffuseMaterial.Brush dependency property identifier.

This example shows how to use a DrawingBrush as the Material applied to a 3-D model.

The following code defines a DrawingGroup as the content of a DrawingBrush. The DrawingBrush is set as the Brush property of the DiffuseMaterial applied to a 3-D plane.

Note: It is often desirable to define complex objects and values like the drawing below as resources which can be reused and simplify your code. See Resources Overview for more information.

<!-- The material specifies the material applied to the 3D object. In this sample a tiled drawing   
     covers the surface of the 3D object.-->
