[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Describes a two-dimensional rectangular geometry.

public sealed class RectangleGeometry : Geometry
<RectangleGeometry .../>

The RectangleGeometry type exposes the following members.

Public methodRectangleGeometryInitializes a new instance of the RectangleGeometry class, and creates a rectangle with zero area.

Public propertyBoundsGets a Rect that specifies the axis-aligned bounding box of the Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)
Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyRadiusXGets or sets the x-radius of the ellipse that is used to round the corners of the rectangle.
Public propertyRadiusYGets or sets the y-radius of the ellipse that is used to round the corners of the rectangle.
Public propertyRectGets or sets the dimensions of the rectangle.
Public propertyTransformGets or sets the Transform object applied to a Geometry. (Inherited from Geometry.)

Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValueClears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValueSets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Public fieldStatic memberRadiusXPropertyIdentifies the RadiusX dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberRadiusYPropertyIdentifies the RadiusY dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberRectPropertyIdentifies the Rect dependency property.

The following example shows how to create and render a RectangleGeometry object. The position and dimensions of the rectangle are defined by a Rect property value, provided as an attribute. The position is 50,50 and the height and width are both 25, which creates a square. The following illustration shows the output of the example.
