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

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