IGetTessPtsSize Method (ICurve)

Gets the size of the array required by ICurve::IGetTessPts.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetTessPtsSize( _
   ByVal ChordTolerance As Double, _
   ByVal LengthTolerance As Double, _
   ByRef StartPoint As Double, _
   ByRef EndPoint As Double _
) As Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICurve
Dim ChordTolerance As Double
Dim LengthTolerance As Double
Dim StartPoint As Double
Dim EndPoint As Double
Dim value As Integer
value = instance.IGetTessPtsSize(ChordTolerance, LengthTolerance, StartPoint, EndPoint)
int IGetTessPtsSize( 
   double ChordTolerance,
   double LengthTolerance,
   ref double StartPoint,
   ref double EndPoint
int IGetTessPtsSize( 
&   double ChordTolerance,
&   double LengthTolerance,
&   double% StartPoint,
&   double% EndPoint


Chord tolerance to be used in tessellation (meters); this is the maximum permitted
distance from a cord to the curve between the cord endpoints
Length tolerance to be used to filter out very short segments (meters);  tessellated
segments shorter than this value are not returned
Pointer to an array containing the start point of the curve

Pointer to an array containing the end point of the curve

Return Value

Number of doubles returned when ICurve::IGetTessPts is called


To get the actual tessellation points, use ICurve::IGetTessPts. Arguments passed to ICurve::IGetTessPts must match the arguments passed to this method.
