Remarks

A geometry is an arbitrary 2-D area, and a means of representing geometric shapes. It may consist of lines, polygons with multiple segments, bezier curves, or any number of open or closed figures comprised of these. There aren't any limits on how complex a geometry can be. It can be zero-sized, consist of one point, or be arbitrarily complex.

A geometry object can be drawn using CanvasDrawingSession's DrawGeometry Overload or FillGeometry Overload.

Geometry objects can be manipulated using methods like CombineWith Overload or Stroke Overload.

Some primitives that can be created using static CanvasGeometry methods, such as Rectangle, may also be drawn straightforwardly through CanvasDrawingSession's methods. In fact, for simple cases, CanvasDrawingSession's methods are recommended.

Complex geometries, sometimes those created through CanvasGeometry.CreatePath, can be costly to draw. It may be worth paying a one-time, up-front performance cost for a less expensive draw-time cost. To do this, consider using CanvasCachedGeometry.

When using Direct2D interop, this Win2D class corresponds to the Direct2D interface ID2D1Geometry. Depending on how the CanvasGeometry was created, its underlying Direct2D resource will also implement one of the derived interfaces ID2D1PathGeometry, ID2D1RectangleGeometry, ID2D1RoundedRectangleGeometry, ID2D1EllipseGeometry, ID2D1TransformedGeometry, or ID2D1GeometryGroup.
