Path is a content element that represents series of connected lines and curves. The shape of the path is specified by its Geometry property.
Path is a content element that is designed to be added in the Content collection of an IContainerElement such RadFixedPage. There are several approaches, which you can adopt to achieve that.
Example 1 shows how you can create a Path, assign a predefined Geometry to it and add it to a container.
Example 1: Create Path and add it to container
Path path = new Path(); path.Geometry = geometry; container.Content.Add(path);
Example 2 demonstrates how to use one of the factory methods of the ContentElementCollection that create a new path and insert it into the document.
Example 2: Add Path to container
Path path = container.Content.AddPath(); path.Geometry = geometry;
There are other methods that allow adding a path to a document. They could be used through the FixedContentEditor class.
You can modify a Path element using the properties the class exposes. The properties are listed below.
Fill: The color that is used to fill the path. The default value is Black.
Stroke: The color that is used to stroke the path. The default value is Black.
IsFilled: Specifies whether the path should be filled.
IsStroked: Specified whether the path should be stroked.
StrokeThickness: The width of the stroke outline.
StrokeLineCap: Specifies the shape, which is used at the ends of open paths when they are stroked.
Flat: Flat line cap.
Round: Round line cap.
Square: Square line cap.
StrokeLineJoin: Specifies the shape to be used at the corners of paths that are stroked. Join styles are significant only at the points where consecutive segments of a path connect at an angle.
Bevel: Produces a diagonal corner.
Miter: Produces a sharp corner. If the segments meet at too sharp angle, a bevel join is used instead.
Round: Produces a smooth, circular arc between the lines.
StrokeDashArray: The pattern of dashes and gaps used to stroke paths.
StrokeDashOffset: The distance from the start of a line to the beginning of a dash pattern.
MiterLimit: The limit of the thickness of the join on a mitered corner.
Geometry: The shape to be drawn. More information about geometries is available here.
