IConvertArcToBcurveSize Method (ICurve)

Gets the b-curve size for the arc's conversion given the coordinates of the two end points of a line.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IConvertArcToBcurveSize( _
   ByRef Center As Double, _
   ByRef Axis As Double, _
   ByRef Start As Double, _
   ByRef End As Double _
) As Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICurve
Dim Center As Double
Dim Axis As Double
Dim Start As Double
Dim End As Double
Dim value As Integer
value = instance.IConvertArcToBcurveSize(Center, Axis, Start, End)
int IConvertArcToBcurveSize( 
   ref double Center,
   ref double Axis,
   ref double Start,
   ref double End
int IConvertArcToBcurveSize( 
&   double% Center,
&   double% Axis,
&   double% Start,
&   double% End



Pointer to an array of doubles (x, y, z), the coordinates of the arc center


Pointer to an array of doubles (x, y, z), the normal vector of the arc


Pointer to an array of doubles (x, y, z), the coordinates of the arc start point
