Surface Methods

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

Public Instance Methods

Compile Create a DisplayList in a MNDevice.
Copy Makes a copy of the surface and returns it.
CreateDisplayList Create a displayList like Compile, but it doesnt stores it to DisplayList
Equals (inherited from Object) 
getCross This method calculates a crosspoint of a LineType with the surface, if this exists. In that case the crosspoint is given by the values u and v and can be calculated with the Value-function
GetHashCode (inherited from Object) 
GetType (inherited from Object) 
getULength Calculates the real length on the surface for an u, when v=const.
getVLength Calculates the real length on the surface for an v, when u=const.
Normal Returns the normal at point u, v, which is calculated as th crossproduct of uDerivation and vDerivation.
ProjectPoint Gets a point in the u,v parameter room, which is near to the giving Point after transforming with Value.
To2dCurve Erzeugt zu einer 3D-Kurve eine Kurve im Parameterraum, sodass der Abbildung mit Value wieder die 3D-Kurve ergibt.
To3dCurve Creates a 3D-Curve which belongs to the curve which is given by the ParamCurve transformed to the surface
ToString (inherited from Object) 
uDerivation uDerivation returns the partial uderivation.
Value Value returns a xyz-Point which is depending on the parameters u and v. This 3-Dim-function defines a twodimensional area.
vDerivation vDerivation returns the partial vderivation.

Protected Instance Methods

Finalize (inherited from Object) 
getUResolution Is the virtual getfunction fo the property UResolution
getVResolution Is the virtual getfunction fo the property VResolution
MemberwiseClone (inherited from Object) 
setUResolution Is the virtual set-function fo the property UResolution
setVResolution Is the virtual set-function fo the property VResolution
