SurfaceCurve Methods

The methods of the SurfaceCurve class are listed below. For a complete list of SurfaceCurve class members, see the SurfaceCurve 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 Overrides the Copy method.
Derivation Returns the Derivation of Curve.
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 Calls the SetBorder-method of the Curve
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 (inherited from Curve3D) Gets an array of Resolution+1 interpolationpoints.
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 Returns the Value from the Curve

Protected Instance Methods

Finalize (inherited from Object) 
getA Returns A from Curve
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 Returns B from Curve
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 setA and sets the value to Curve.A. Addionally the A-Property of MappedCurves will be updated.
setAtang (inherited from Curve3D) This is the virtual setter method of the property Atang
setB Overrides setA and sets the value to Curve.B. Addionally the B-Property of MappedCurves will be updated.
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
