The ShapeFill property fills the shape with respective color. The ShapeStroke property sets the border color for the shape in the map, and the ShapeStrokeThickness property sets the thickness for the shape’s border.

         private void InitializeComponent()

            this.mapsControl1 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Maps.Maps();

            this.mapsControl1.Name = "mapsControl1";

            this.mapsControl1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(880, 585); 


            this.ClientSize = new System.Drawing.Size(880, 585);          

            this.Load += new System.EventHandler(this.Form1_Load);


            private Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Maps.Maps mapsControl1;

public partial class Form1 : Form

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

            this.mapsControl1.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;

            this.mapsControl1.Margin = new Padding(0, 0, 4, 0);

            this.mapsControl1.MapBackgroundBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.White);

            this.mapsControl1.MapItemsShape = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Maps.MapItemShapes.None;

             ShapeFileLayer shapeLayer = new ShapeFileLayer();

             shapeLayer.Uri = "world1.shp";
