Change the stroke properties of an object
To change the stroke properties of an object
- On the Toolbox in Microsoft® Expression Blend™, click the Selection
and then select the object for which you want to adjust the stroke properties.
- Under Brushes in the Properties
panel, make sure that Stroke is selected.
- Under Appearance in the
Properties panel, do one or more of the following:
- To set the stroke width, select a value for the desired stroke width
next to StrokeThickness. The value of the stroke width is
measured in pixels (or, device-independent units which are
approximately 1/96 inch). Change the value to 0 if you don't want the object to have
any stroke width applied to it.
- To set the corner join, click one of the following next to
- Miter For a pointed corner.
- Bevel For a squared-off corner.
- Round For a rounded corner.
- To set the miter limit, use the value slider, or type in a value next
StrokeMiterLimit. The miter limit can only be set
when Miter is selected as the corner join. The miter limit describes how long the point of a miter join can get before
it is automatically squared off into a bevel join.
- To set the end cap style, click one of the following next to
StrokeEndLineCap (or both):
- Flat To create a squared-off end cap.
- Square To create an end cap that extends beyond the end point by one half the
width of the stroke.
- Round To create a rounded end cap.
- Triangle To create a pointed end cap.
