PlaneClosestParameter Method

Gets the parameters of the point on the plane closest to a test point.

Namespace:  Rhino.Geometry
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
Syntax
public bool ClosestParameter(
	Point3d testPoint,
	out double s,
	out double t
)

Parameters

testPoint
Type: Rhino.GeometryPoint3d
Point to get close to.
s
Type: SystemDouble
Parameter along plane X-direction.
t
Type: SystemDouble
Parameter along plane Y-direction.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
true if a parameter could be found, false if the point could not be projected successfully.
Examples
using System;
using Rhino.Geometry;
