CanvasDrawingSessionCreateLayer Method (Single, ICanvasBrush, Rect, CanvasGeometry, Matrix3x2, CanvasLayerOptions)
Creates a layer that will clip its contents to a rectangle and/or geometry region, and blend using the specified opacity and/or opacity mask brush.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Graphics.Canvas
Assembly:  Microsoft.Graphics.Canvas (in Microsoft.Graphics.Canvas.dll) Version:

The layer affects all drawing until the returned CanvasActiveLayer object is closed. In C# this is typically done with a 'using' statement, or in C++/CX the 'delete' keyword.

Antialising mode of the clip geometry is determined by the value of the Antialiasing property when CreateLayer is called.

For more information about layers, see CanvasActiveLayer.
