ReaderSvgReadGeometry Method (String)
public Image ReadGeometry( string uri )
Drawing objects do not derive from the FrameworkElement class and provide a lighter-weight implementation for rendering shapes, images, and text. Because of this Drawing objects on one side lack support for Layout System, input, and focus, but on the other side have much better performance and lower memory consumption.
Returned Drawing has much better performance as Shapes that are returned with Read method.
If better layout support, input, focus and other functionality is needed use Read method instead that returns elements as Shapes.
