) As Curve
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICurve
Dim AtStart As Boolean
Dim Length As Double
Dim LinearExt As Boolean
Dim value As Curve
value = instance.ExtentCurve(AtStart, Length, LinearExt)
Curve ExtentCurve( 
   bool AtStart,
   double Length,
   bool LinearExt
Curve^ ExtentCurve( 
&   bool AtStart,
&   double Length,
&   bool LinearExt


True to extend b-spline curve from start point, false to extend b-spline curve from end point

Length by which to extend b-spline curve
