#1,144 – Geometry in Custom Shape Doesn’t Automatically Scale

If you define a custom Shape by creating some Geometry, the resulting geometry will not automatically scale when shape’s size is changed.

Suppose that we have the following custom shape.

    public class MyShape : Shape
    {
        protected override Geometry DefiningGeometry
        {
            get
            {
                StreamGeometry geom = new StreamGeometry();
                using (StreamGeometryContext ctx = geom.Open())
                {
                    ctx.BeginFigure(
                        new Point(0.0, 0.0),
                        false,
                        false);
                    ctx.LineTo(
                        new Point(50.0, 50.0),
                        true,
                        false);
                }

                return geom;
            }
        }
    }

Placing this control in a StackPanel, it’s size is just large enough to accommodate the geometry.

If we explicitly make the shape larger, the underlying geometry stays the same size.
