Bezier Methods

The methods of the Bezier class are listed below. For a complete list of Bezier class members, see the Bezier Members topic.

Public Instance Methods

Changed (inherited from Curve) This method is called, when the curve is changed. It fires the event OnChanged
Clone (inherited from Curve) Produces an exact copy of the curve by using the BinaryFormatter. So you have to mark a new instance of Curve with the attribute [Serializable].
Cross (inherited from Curve)Overloaded. Crosses the Curve with an other curve by crossing the interpolating polygonarray.
Derivation Overrides the abstract Derivationfunction Derivation of the curve class and retrieves the derivation of the Bezierfunction of t, depending on the controlpoints Points
Distance (inherited from Curve)Overloaded. This method calculates the distance of a LineType to a Curve only in case, when the distance is smaller then MaxDist, otherwise big will be returned. You can imagine a cylinders with radius MaxDist around the Curve. If the line goes through the "curved" cylinder, then the distance will be calculated and returned.
Equals (inherited from Object) 
FindType (inherited from Curve) Gets the associated type of an ID
GetCrossList (inherited from Curve) Get a CrossList, which contains the crossing points with another curve?. The parameter param1 and param2 in CrossItem are converted to a curve parameter.
GetHashCode (inherited from Object) 
GetMaxrect (inherited from Curve)Overloaded. Gets a minimal rectangle, which contains a curve, transformed by a transformation.
GetType (inherited from Object) 
InsertPoint (inherited from Curve) Inserts a point at the position, which is given by Param.
Invert (inherited from Curve) Inverts the direction of the curve by exchange A and B resp. Atang and Btang
LengthToParam (inherited from Curve) Converts a length to a param, which can be used in the method Value.
LoadFromStream Loads Atang and Btang from Stream
Parallel (inherited from Curve) Returns a leftside parallel xyArray to the curve, which has a distance of width.
ParamToLength (inherited from Curve) Calculates the length of a part of the curve, which is given from 0 to the value param.
SaveToStream Writes Atang and Btang to Stream
SecondDerive Gets the second derivation of the bezier curve
SetBorder (inherited from Curve)Overloaded. Set the border of the curve to the new start- and endpoints of the curve, whose are near to _A and to_B
Slice Overrides the Slice-method.
ToArray (inherited from Curve) This method fills values, calculated by the function Value in an array, starting at index.
ToString (inherited from Object) 
ToXYArray (inherited from Curve) Gets an array of Resolution+1 interpolationpoints.
Transform Overrides the Transform-method, whitch transforms the ControlPoints.
Value Overrides the abstract Value function Valueof the curve class and retrieves the Bezierfunction of t depending on the control points Points.

Protected Instance Methods

Finalize (inherited from Object) 
getA Overrides the abstract getA-method and returns the point[0].
getAtang Overrides the getAtang and returns Points[1] - Points[0].
getB Overrides the getB-Method by returning the Point[3]
getBtang Overrides the getAtang and returns Points[3] - Points[2].
GetMaxrect (inherited from Curve)Overloaded. Gets the smaller rectangle, which contains the curve.
getVisible (inherited from Curve) virtual getmethod of the property Visible
MemberwiseClone (inherited from Object) 
setA Overrides the method setA by setting the value of the Point[0];
setAtang Overrides the setAtang-method
setB Overrides the setA-method by setting the endpoint to Points[3].
setBtang Overrides the setBtang by setting Points[2] to Points[3] - value;
setVisible (inherited from Curve) Virtual setmethod of the property Visible
