  • Hi Krishna.13579,

    You can achieve this by using a DrawingBrush to paint the Background.

    Here is a simple sample.


          <DrawingBrush Viewbox="0,0,5,5" Viewport="0,0,5,5" ViewportUnits="Absolute" TileMode="FlipXY">
              <GeometryDrawing Brush="Black">
                    <EllipseGeometry Center="0,0" RadiusX="1" RadiusY="1"/>

    Please refer to for more information about Brushes.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,
