The <Line/> element of XAML is used to draw a line. The X1,Y1 and X2,Y2 attributes represent the starting and ending point of the line and Stroke represents the color of the line. The StrokeThickness attribute represents the thickness of the line.

The following code draws a line from point (100,100) t (300,100) with blue color and thickness is 5.

 

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="#FFE4EDE1">

        <Line Stroke="#000fff" StrokeThickness="5" X1="100" Y1="100" X2="300" Y2="100" >  

        </Line>

      </Grid>
