Property Value

Type Description

A Color value that specifies how the map item outline is painted.


Use the Stroke property when implementing the MapControl.DrawMapItem event.


This example illustrates how to customize vector items when they are drawn on a map.

To do this, it's necessary to handle the MapControl.DrawMapItem event and provide new values for the event arguments object.

using DevExpress.XtraMap;

namespace DrawMapItemExample {

    public class MapItemFactory : DefaultMapItemFactory {

        protected override void InitializeItem(MapItem item, object obj) {
            base.InitializeItem(item, obj);
            MapRectangle rect = item as MapRectangle;
            if(rect != null) {
                rect.Width = 1000;
                rect.Height = 1000;
