Geometry.StrokeContains Method (Pen, Point)

Determines whether the specified Point is contained in the stroke produced by applying the specified Pen to the geometry.

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

public bool StrokeContains(
	Pen pen,
	Point hitPoint


Type: System.Windows.Media.Pen
An object that determines the area of the geometry's stroke.
Type: System.Windows.Point
The point to test for containment.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if hitPoint is contained in the stroke produced by applying the specified Pen to the geometry; otherwise, false.

The default tolerance factor (specified by the StandardFlatteningTolerance property) is used when determining whether the specified point is located in the geometry's stroke. To specify your own tolerance factor, use the StrokeContains overload.

Some Geometry methods (such as StrokeContains) 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.
