We can use the Line XAML element to draw lines in XAML and the Line class in WPF represents the XAML Line element. Learn here how to draw a Line in WPF. In this article, we will see how to use the LineSegment to draw a line.
Besides drawing lines using the Line element, we can also use the LineSegment element. The LineSegment is useful when a line becomes a part of a graphics path or a larger geometric object.
The LineSegment object represents a line between a start point and an end point. The LineSegment class has one property, Point that represents the end point of the line. The start point is a part of the path.
The following XAML code snippet creates a line segment. A Path object is used to draw an arc by setting a PathGeomerty as Path.Data.
<Path Stroke="Black" StrokeThickness="1">
<LineSegment Point="200,100" />
The following code snippet creates a Path and sets a LineSegment as a part of PathFigure.Segments.The output looks like Figure 1.
The following code snippet dynamically creates the line segment shown in Figure 1.
private void CreateLineSegment()
PathFigure pthFigure = new PathFigure();
pthFigure.StartPoint = new Point(10, 100);
LineSegment lineSeg = new LineSegment ();
lineSeg.Point = new Point(200, 100);
PathSegmentCollection myPathSegmentCollection = new PathSegmentCollection();
pthFigure.Segments = myPathSegmentCollection;
PathFigureCollection pthFigureCollection = new PathFigureCollection();
PathGeometry pthGeometry = new PathGeometry();
pthGeometry.Figures = pthFigureCollection;
Path arcPath = new Path();
arcPath.Stroke = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Black);
arcPath.StrokeThickness = 1;
arcPath.Data = pthGeometry;
arcPath.Fill = new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Yellow);
