Provides access to members that identify a ring and define its behavior. Note: the IRing interface has been superseded by IRing2. Please consider using the more recent version.
A Ring is a type of surface patch that defines a two dimensional area and can be used to construct a MultiPatch, defined by a collection of points forming a closed Path, such that the From and To points have the same coordinates. The front side is established by orienting its vertices clockwise.
Name | Description | |
---|---|---|
Close | Makes sure that this ring is closed by adding a line segment between the ring's 'to' and 'from' points if necessary. | |
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. | |
Generalize | Generalizes this path using the Douglas-Peucker algorithm. | |
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 This method is obsolete.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. | |
GetSubcurveEx | Extracts a portion of this curve into a new curve. The interior of the new curve may contain the from/to point of the ring when useRingOrientation is true. | |
IsClosed | Indicates if 'from' and 'to' points (of each part) are identical. | |
IsEmpty | Indicates whether this geometry contains any points. | |
IsExterior | Indicates if this ring can function as the exterior ring in a polygon (ring orientation is clockwise, area > 0). | |
Length | The length of the curve. | |
Project | Projects this geometry into a new spatial reference. | |
QueryChordLengthTangents | Returns tangent vectors (relative to corresponding endpoint) at both sides of a Bezier end point; and whether they have been set by user or by smoothing process. | |
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. | |
Reshape | Modifies this ring by replacing some of its segments with some segments from reshapeSource. | |
ReverseOrientation | Reverses the parameterization of the curve ('from' point becomes 'to' point, first segment becomes last segment, etc). | |
SetChordLengthTangents | Sets tangent vectors (relative to corresponding endpoint) at both sides of a Bezier end point; if either is Nothing, they will be set by smoothing process. | |
SetEmpty | Removes all points from this geometry. | |
Smooth | Converts this path into a smooth approximation of itself that contains only Bezier curve segments. | |
SmoothLocal | Replaces up to four segments (two on each of the specified vertex index) with bezier curves. | |
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. |
