Line3D Methods

The methods of the Line3D class are listed below. For a complete list of Line3D class members, see the Line3D Members topic.

Public Instance Methods

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 (inherited from Curve3D) Copy the Curve. Some instances override this method.
Derivation Overrides the abstract value function Derivationof the curve class and returns direction B - A
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 Projects a point normal to the Line.
ParamToLength (inherited from Curve3D) Calculates the length of a part of the curve, which is given from 0 to the value param.
SetBorder Overrides the SetBorder-method and set A to _A and B to _B.
Slice Overrides the Slice-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 (inherited from Curve3D) Gets an array of Resolution+1 interpolationpoints.
Transform Overrides the Transform-method and transforms the points A and B.
Value Overrides the abstract value function Valueof the curve class and returns the linear function through A and B

Protected Instance Methods

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 Overrides the setAtang-method and ignores the setting.
setB Overrides the setB-method and saves the value in a local variable.
setBtang Overrides the setBtang-method and ignores the setting.
SetClosed (inherited from Curve3D) Virtual Settermethod of Closed-property
setVisible (inherited from Curve3D) Virtual setmethod of the property Visible
