The methods of the **Circle3D** class are listed below. For a complete list of **Circle3D** class members, see the Circle3D Members topic.

Changed (inherited from Curve3D) | This method is called, when the curve is changed. It fires the event OnChanged |

Clone (inherited from Curve3D) | 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]. |

Copy | Overrides the Copy method and copies the Base and the Radius. |

Derivation | Overrides the Derivation-method. |

Distance (inherited from Curve3D) | 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) | |

GetHashCode (inherited from Object) | |

GetMaxrect (inherited from Curve3D) | Overloaded. Gets a minimal Box, which contains a curve, transformed by a transformation. |

GetType (inherited from Object) | |

InsertPoint (inherited from Curve3D) | Inserts a point at the position, which is given by Param. |

Invert (inherited from Curve3D) | Inverts the orientation of a curve. The base-method is empty. You should override it in a derived class. |

LengthToParam (inherited from Curve3D) | Converts a length to a param, which can be used in the method Value. |

NormalCross (inherited from Curve3D) | Calculates a point of a Curve, which is nearest to "Point" |

ParamToLength (inherited from Curve3D) | Calculates the length of a part of the curve, which is given from 0 to the value param. |

SetBorder | Overreides the SetBorder-method. It projects at first the Points A and B to the Circle and sets then fromParam and toParam. |

Slice (inherited from Curve3D) | This method trims the curve to the part between "from" and "to". The base-method sets fromParam = from and toParam = to. In general this is not the best solution. So it is better to override this method without calling to the base method. |

ToArray (inherited from Curve3D) | This method fills values, calculated by the function Value in an array, starting at index. |

ToString (inherited from Object) | |

ToxyzArray | Overrides the ToxyzArray-method |

Transform (inherited from Curve3D) | Transforms a Curve with the transformation given by m. The method in the base class is empty. So you have to override this function, if you want to transform a Curve. |

Value | Overrides the value function and implement the circle function. For a full Circle you have to take the parameter from 0 to 1. 1 is equivalent to 2*PI. |

Finalize (inherited from Object) | |

getA | Overrides the getA-method and returns the value of a local variable. |

getAtang (inherited from Curve3D) | This method is the getMethod of the Atang-property, which retrieves the start tangent. By default Derivation(fromParam) is returned. |

getB | Overrides the getB-method and returns the value of a local variable. |

getBtang (inherited from Curve3D) | This method is the getMethod of the Btang-property, which retrieves the Endtangent. By default Derivaion(toParam) is returned. |

GetMaxrect (inherited from Curve3D) | Overloaded. Gets the smaller rectangle, which contains the curve. |

getVisible (inherited from Curve3D) | virtual getmethod of the property Visible |

MemberwiseClone (inherited from Object) | |

setA | Overrides the setA-method and saves the value in a local variable. |

setAtang (inherited from Curve3D) | This is the virtual setter method of the property Atang |

setB | Overrides the setB-method and saves the value in a local variable. |

setBtang (inherited from Curve3D) | This is the virtual set method of the property B |

SetClosed (inherited from Curve3D) | Virtual Settermethod of Closed-property |

setVisible (inherited from Curve3D) | Virtual setmethod of the property Visible |
