How to set Crosshair (CursorModifier) color and thickness in xaml?

Hi there,

That appears to be the default behavior of WPF lines. To change it, you should set SnapsToDevicePixels to “True” and RenderOptions.EdgeMode to “Aliased” on a line. For Cursor, you could do this in a style using Andrew’s suggestion above:

                <Style TargetType="Line">
                <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="1" />
                <Setter Property="SnapsToDevicePixels" Value="True" />
                <Setter Property="RenderOptions.EdgeMode" Value="Aliased" />

Hope it helps!

Best regards,

Hi there,

The following properties are available for styling the CursorModifier:

Changing the CursorModifier Line Style

If you simply want to change the line style, try this code:

        <Style TargetType="Line">
            <!-- To set the stroke -->
            <Setter Property="Stroke" Value="Red"/>

            <!-- To set the StrokeThickness -->
            <Setter Property="StrokeThickness" Value="2"/>

            <!-- To set a dashed line, else leave this setter out for default -->
            <Setter Property="StrokeDashArray" Value="2 2"/>

Hope this helps!

    Andrew, thank you. Actually I was trying to make crosshair thinner , but apparently default value is 1. But it's still twice thicker than gridline (2 pixels versus 1).
