|How to: Draw an Ellipse or a Circle||This example shows how to draw ellipses and circles by using the element. To draw an ellipse, create an element and specify its Width and Height. Use its Fill property to specify the Brush that is used to paint the interior of the ellipse. Use its Stroke property to specify the Brush that is used to paint the outline of the ellipse. The StrokeThickness property specifies the thickness of the ellipse outline.|
|How to: Paint an Area with a Solid Color||To paint an area with a solid color, you can use a predefined system brush, such as Red or Blue, or you can create a new SolidColorBrush and describe its Color using alpha, red, green, and blue values. In XAML, you may also paint an area with a solid color by using hexidecimal notation.|
