Hi all!

Having trouble getting an outline when drawing a point.

This is my code:

VectorStyle style = new VectorStyle();
                    style.PointColor = this.colorAscending;
                    style.PointSize = pointSize;
                    style.EnableOutline = true;
                    style.Outline = new Pen(Color.YellowGreen, 20f);
                    return style; I missing something?

Enable Outline applies to lineal geometries only.

You can always render your however fancy symbol beforehand and assign it to the Symbol property of your vector style.

Or you try to setup a PointSymbolizer (see SharpMap.Rendering.Symbolizer namespace and ExampleCodeSnipplets project for samples)

@FObermaier - Ok thanks!


I ended up using a PointSymbolizer:

VectorStyle style = new VectorStyle();
style.PointSymbolizer = SharpMap.Rendering.Symbolizer.PathPointSymbolizer.CreateCircle(new Pen(Color.White, 1f), this.colorAscending, pointSize);
                    return style;

Worked perfect :)

Hi !.

How can I do that in Sharpmap 0.9?. I can't find SharpMap.Rendering.Symbolizer.

I just need to draw some points with differents colors. I read something about using Symbol propertie in the VectorLayer Style, but I couldn't create the Bitmap.

My code in Sharpmap 1.1.0:
SharpMap.Styles.VectorStyle style = new SharpMap.Styles.VectorStyle();
style.PointSymbolizer = SharpMap.Rendering.Symbolizer.PathPointSymbolizer.CreateCircle(new Pen(layer.OutlineColor.HasValue ? layer.OutlineColor.Value : Color.Transparent, 1), new SolidBrush(layer.BackgroundColor.HasValue ? layer.BackgroundColor.Value : Color.Transparent), 5f);
How can I do that in Sharpmap 0.9 ?.

var bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(24, 24);
using(var g = System.Drawing.Graphics.FromBitmap(bmp))
    g.DrawEllipse(Pens.Red, ....)
    g.FillEllipse(Brushes.Black, ....)
