    how to create a diagonal cross symbol

    bbthao
      How do I create a diagonal cross symbol using arcgis wpf api?  I saw the samples for custom symbols with backward/forward diagonal but not diagonal cross or cross symbol.

      Thanks!

          You could use an ImageBrush set to tiled for fill, and have a "diamond" or "X" in the image. When this gets tiled, it will look like a crosshatch.

            Thanks for the suggestion, but I try to avoid using images. 
            Arcgis desktop api does provide a way to draw cross or diagonal cross.  I was wondering if arcgis wpf provides that as well.

              I'm looking for a map Symbol object that can take in a hatch style or a HatchBrush.   This will allow me to draw cross/diagonal cross. This was what arcgis desktop 9.3 api provided.  I'm looking for the similar class in arcgis wpf.
