    ConstructPolygonSymbol(CIMFill,CIMStroke) Method
    In This Topic
    Constructs a polygon symbol from a fill and an outline.
    public CIMPolygonSymbol ConstructPolygonSymbol( 
       CIMFill fill,
       CIMStroke outline
    Public Overloads Function ConstructPolygonSymbol( _
       ByVal fill As CIMFill, _
       ByVal outline As CIMStroke _
    ) As CIMPolygonSymbol



    Return Value

    Passing null for outline will create a polygon symbol without an outline.
