GetPointConstrain Method (Curve, Boolean)

Constrains the picked point to lie on a curve.

Namespace:  Rhino.Input.Custom
Assembly:  RhinoCommon (in RhinoCommon.dll)
Since: 5.0
public bool Constrain(
	Curve curve,
	bool allowPickingPointOffObject


Type: Rhino.GeometryCurve
A curve to use as constraint.
Type: SystemBoolean
defines whether the point pick is allowed to happen off object. When false, a "no no" cursor is shown when the cursor is not on the object. When true, a normal point picking cursor is used and the marker is visible also when the cursor is not on the object.

Return Value

Type: Boolean
true if constraint could be applied.

using Rhino.DocObjects;
