IConstructCurve Interface

Provides access to members that construct a curve using other geometries and measures. Note: the IConstructCurve interface has been superseded by IConstructCurve3. Please consider using the more recent version.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


IConstructCurve contains methods used to create specialized Polylines or Polygons from input curvesConstructOffset is used to create the right or left offset of a given curve.  ConstructExtended extends a curve according to the desired extension method.


Name Description
Method ConstructExtended Constructs an extended version of the 'from' curve that goes to the 'to' curve. The flags are bit-wise combined esriCurveExtension values.
Method ConstructKoch Constructs a Koch snowflake fractal using the input polycurve as the generator. 'r' is not used. Do not use a value for recursionLevel > 10.
Method ConstructOffset Constructs a curve being the locus of points offset a given distance from another curve. See the enumeration esriConstructOffsetEnum to information on different ways that offset curve can be generated.
