BezierSegment Class

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

Represents a cubic Bezier curve drawn between two points.


Namespace:  System.Windows.Media
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

public sealed class BezierSegment : PathSegment
<BezierSegment .../>

The BezierSegment type exposes the following members.

Public methodBezierSegmentInitializes a new instance of the BezierSegment class.

Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyPoint1Gets or sets the first control point of the curve.
Public propertyPoint2Gets or sets the second control point of the curve.
Public propertyPoint3Gets or sets the end point of the curve.

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 memberPoint1PropertyIdentifies the Point1 dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberPoint2PropertyIdentifies the Point2 dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberPoint3PropertyIdentifies the Point3 dependency property.

Use a PathFigure object to store BezierSegment objects and other segments.

A cubic Bezier curve is defined by four points: a start point, an end point (Point3), and two control points (Point1 and Point2). The BezierSegment class does not contain a property for the starting point of the curve; it only defines the end point. The beginning point of the curve is the current point of the PathFigure to which the BezierSegment is added.

The two control points of a cubic Bezier curve behave like magnets, attracting portions of what would otherwise be a straight line toward themselves and producing a curve. The first control point, Point1, affects the beginning portion of the curve; the second control point, Point2, affects the ending portion of the curve. Note that the curve doesn't necessarily pass through either of the control points; each control point moves its portion of the line toward itself, but not through itself.

To specify a Bezier type segment with more control points, see PolyBezierSegment.

The following example uses a BezierSegment as one of the PathSegment items in a PathGeometry.

  <Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1" >
          <PathFigure StartPoint="10,50">
              <BezierSegment Point1="100,0"
              <LineSegment Point="400,100" />
              <ArcSegment Size="50,50" RotationAngle="45"
                IsLargeArc="True" SweepDirection="Clockwise"
