GetTessPts Method (ICurve)

Gets a set of points that represent the tessellation of this curve.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetTessPts( _
   ByVal ChordTolerance As Double, _
   ByVal LengthTolerance As Double, _
   ByVal StartPoint As Object, _
   ByVal EndPoint As Object _
) As Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICurve
Dim ChordTolerance As Double
Dim LengthTolerance As Double
Dim StartPoint As Object
Dim EndPoint As Object
Dim value As Object
value = instance.GetTessPts(ChordTolerance, LengthTolerance, StartPoint, EndPoint)
object GetTessPts( 
   double ChordTolerance,
   double LengthTolerance,
   object StartPoint,
   object EndPoint
Object^ GetTessPts( 
&   double ChordTolerance,
&   double LengthTolerance,
&   Object^ StartPoint,
&   Object^ EndPoint



Chord tolerance to use in tessellation (meters); this is the maximum permitted distance from a cord to the curve between the cord endpoints; the smallest allowable value for this parameter is 1E-8; if 0.0 or a value smaller than 1E-8 is specified, then 1E-8 is used by default

Length tolerance to be used to filter out very short segments (meters); this method does not return tessellated segments shorter than this value
Array containing the start point of the curve
Array containing the end point of the curve

Return Value

Array of doubles containing the tessellation points (see Remarks)



The array returned contains the x, y, z location of the tessellation points:

[ x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2, ... ]
