GeometryCombineMode Enumeration

Specifies the different methods by which two geometries can be combined.

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

'Declaration
Public Enumeration GeometryCombineMode
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
ExcludeThe second region is excluded from the first. Given two geometries, A and B, the area of geometry B is removed from the area of geometry A, producing a region that is A-B.
IntersectThe two regions are combined by taking their intersection. The new area consists of the overlapping region between the two geometries.
UnionThe two regions are combined by taking the union of both. The resulting geometry is geometry A + geometry B.
XorThe two regions are combined by taking the area that exists in the first region but not the second and the area that exists in the second region but not the first. The new region consists of (A-B) + (B-A), where A and B are geometries.

The following illustration shows the different geometry combine modes.

Geometry Combine Modes

Different combine modes applied to two geometries

The following example shows how to combine two geometries using the Union combine mode.
