WPF Create Visual with border that appears to be only inside of drawn geometry
private static DrawingVisual CreateVisual()
var noBorderPen = new Pen(new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Transparent), 0);
var selectionPen = new Pen(new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Yellow), 20 * 2);
var drawingVisual = new DrawingVisual();
using (var dc = drawingVisual.RenderOpen())
StreamGeometry geometry = new StreamGeometry();
using (var ctx = geometry.Open())
ctx.BeginFigure(new Point(100, 100), true, true);
ctx.LineTo(new Point(300, 100), true, false);
ctx.LineTo(new Point(300, 200), true, false);
// Draw the geometry
dc.DrawGeometry(new SolidColorBrush(Colors.Fuchsia), noBorderPen, geometry);
// Apply a clip path to only draw the geometry and hide everything outside
// Draw the geometry on top with the selection border
dc.DrawGeometry(Brushes.Transparent, selectionPen, geometry);
// Remove the clip path
return drawingVisual;
