IConstructPoint.ConstructDeflectionIntersection Method

Constructs the point of intersection of two rays with origins at the endpoints of the base line and the specified angles (in radians). If onRightSide is true, this work will be done to the right of the base line, otherwise to the left.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Sub ConstructDeflectionIntersection ( _
    ByVal baseLine As ILine, _
    ByVal startAngle As Double, _
    ByVal endAngle As Double, _
    ByVal OnRightSide As Boolean _
public void ConstructDeflectionIntersection (
    ILine baseLine,
    double startAngle,
    double endAngle,
    bool OnRightSide
HRESULT ConstructDeflectionIntersection(
  ILine* baseLine,
  double startAngle,
  double endAngle,

baseLine is a parameter of type ILine* startAngle
startAngle is a parameter of type double endAngle
endAngle is a parameter of type double OnRightSide
OnRightSide is a parameter of type bool

Product Availability

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


the bRightSide flag can be used to always force the constructed point to be on the right side of the baseline.

The startAngle is the angle (in radians) from the baseline's startpoint of the line to the constructed point. The endAngle is the angle (in radians) from the baseline's endpoint to the constructed point.

Both angles have to be > 0 and < 2 PI radians. Their sum must also be less than PI radians.

ConstructDeflectionIntersection Example
//Constructs a point from the baseline from (0,0) to (1,1)
//with the deflection angle of 45 degrees (PI/4 radians).
public void ConstructDeflectionIntersection()
  IPoint fromPoint = new PointClass();
  fromPoint.PutCoords(0, 0);
  IPoint toPoint = new PointClass();
  toPoint.PutCoords(1, 1);
  ILine line = new LineClass();
  line.PutCoords(fromPoint, toPoint);
  double startAngle = Math.PI / 4;
  double endAngle = Math.PI / 4;
  IConstructPoint constructionPoint = new PointClass();
  constructionPoint.ConstructDeflectionIntersection(line, startAngle, endAngle, false);
  IPoint point = constructionPoint as IPoint;
  System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("x,y = " + point.X + ", " + point.Y);
