EdgeMode Enumeration

Determines how the edges of non-text drawing primitives are rendered.

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

public enum EdgeMode
<object property="enumerationMemberName" .../>

Member nameDescription
UnspecifiedNo edge mode is specified. Do not alter the current edge mode of non-text drawing primitives. This is the default value.
AliasedRender the edges of non-text drawing primitives as aliased edges.

Text objects are always displayed by using anti aliasing, and are not affected by setting the edge mode value. The default value for non-text drawing primitives, such as Ellipse and Polygon, is Unspecified.

When you set the edge mode value of a visual object, all the child drawing primitives of that visual object are set to the same EdgeMode value.

The following example shows how to use the SetEdgeMode method to set the edge mode for a drawing primitive to Aliased.


// Set the edge mode to aliased for the visual and any descendant drawing primitives it has.
RenderOptions.SetEdgeMode((DependencyObject)myVisual, EdgeMode.Aliased);
