CreateTrimmedCurve2 Method (ICurve)

Creates a trimmed curve.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateTrimmedCurve2( _
   ByVal X1 As Double, _
   ByVal Y1 As Double, _
   ByVal Z1 As Double, _
   ByVal X2 As Double, _
   ByVal Y2 As Double, _
   ByVal Z2 As Double _
) As Curve
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICurve
Dim X1 As Double
Dim Y1 As Double
Dim Z1 As Double
Dim X2 As Double
Dim Y2 As Double
Dim Z2 As Double
Dim value As Curve
value = instance.CreateTrimmedCurve2(X1, Y1, Z1, X2, Y2, Z2)
Curve CreateTrimmedCurve2( 
   double X1,
   double Y1,
   double Z1,
   double X2,
   double Y2,
   double Z2
Curve^ CreateTrimmedCurve2( 
&   double X1,
&   double Y1,
&   double Z1,
&   double X2,
&   double Y2,
&   double Z2

Return Value

Pointer to the ICurve object (see Remarks)



This method trims the curve from the start point to the end point in a parametric direction. It returns NULL if the curve is discontinued or non-linear between the points.

If your application calls ISurface::CreateTrimmedSheet4 or ISurface::ICreateTrimmedSheet4 to create a sheet with a boundary defined by arcs (IModeler::CreateArc or IModeler::ICreateArc) or lines (IModeler::CreateLine or IModeler::ICreateLine), then your application must first call this method to trim the arc and line curves before passing them to ISurface::CreateTrimmedSheet4 or ISurface::ICreateTrimmedSheet4.

If your application calls ISurface::CreateTrimmedSheet4 or ISurface::ICreateTrimmedSheet4 to create a sheet with an elliptical boundary (IModeler::CreateEllipse or IModeler::ICreateEllipse), then you do not need to trim the elliptical curve before passing it to ISurface::CreateTrimmedSheet4 or ISurface::ICreateTrimmedSheet4.
