Provides access to members that identify a straight line segment and defines its properties. Note: the ILine interface has been superseded by ILine2. Please consider using the more recent version.
Name | Description | |
---|---|---|
Angle | The angle between this line and the positive x-axis. | |
Dimension | The topological dimension of this geometry. | |
Envelope | Creates a copy of this geometry's envelope and returns it. | |
FromPoint | The 'from' point of the curve. | |
GeometryType | The type of this geometry. | |
GeoNormalize | Shifts longitudes, if need be, into a continuous range of 360 degrees. | |
GeoNormalizeFromLongitude | Normalizes longitudes into a continuous range containing the longitude. This method is obsolete. | |
GetSubcurve | Extracts a portion of this curve into a new curve. | |
IsClosed | Indicates if 'from' and 'to' points (of each part) are identical. | |
IsEmpty | Indicates whether this geometry contains any points. | |
Length | The length of the curve. | |
Project | Projects this geometry into a new spatial reference. | |
PutCoords | Sets this line's endpoints to be 'from' and 'to'. | |
QueryCoords | Copies the endpoints of this line to 'from' and 'to'. | |
QueryEnvelope | Copies this geometry's envelope properties into the specified envelope. | |
QueryFromPoint | Copies this curve's 'from' point to the input point. | |
QueryNormal | Constructs a line normal to a curve from a point at a specified distance along the curve. | |
QueryPoint | Copies to outPoint the properties of a point on the curve at a specified distance from the beginning of the curve. | |
QueryPointAndDistance | Finds the point on the curve closest to inPoint, then copies that point to outPoint; optionally calculates related items. | |
QueryTangent | Constructs a line tangent to a curve from a point at a specified distance along the curve. | |
QueryToPoint | Copies the curve's 'to' point into the input point. | |
ReverseOrientation | Reverses the parameterization of the curve ('from' point becomes 'to' point, first segment becomes last segment, etc). | |
SetEmpty | Removes all points from this geometry. | |
SnapToSpatialReference | Moves points of this geometry so that they can be represented in the precision of the geometry's associated spatial reference system. | |
SpatialReference | The spatial reference associated with this geometry. | |
ToPoint | The 'to' point of the curve. |
Interfaces | Description |
---|---|
ICurve | Provides access to properties and methods of all 1 dimensional curves (polylines, segments, boundaries of polygons, etc.). |
IGeometry | Provides access to members that describe properties and behavior of all geometric objects. |
Classes | Description |
---|---|
Line | A 2D straight line between a pair of 2D endpoints; can optionally have height, measure and ID attributes at each endpoint. |
The PutCoords method requires 2 Point objects to construct the line segment.
// This example creates a simple line and gets the angle
// and the start and endpoint.
public void ShowLineAngle()
{
IPoint fromPoint = new PointClass();
fromPoint.PutCoords(100, 100);
IPoint toPoint = new PointClass();
toPoint.PutCoords(150, 150);
ILine line = new LineClass();
line.PutCoords(fromPoint, toPoint);
double angle = line.Angle;
//query Coordinats
IPoint outFromPoint = new PointClass();
IPoint outToPoint = new PointClass();
line.QueryCoords(outFromPoint, outToPoint);
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("From X = " + outFromPoint.X +
", From Y = " + outFromPoint.Y + "\n" +
"To X = " + outToPoint.X +
", To Y = " + outToPoint.Y + "\n" +
"Angle = " + angle);
