﻿Line Methods  # Line Methods

The Line type exposes the following members. Methods
NameDescription ClosestParameter
Finds the parameter on the infinite line segment that is closest to a test point. ClosestPoint
Finds the point on the (in)finite line segment that is closest to a test point. DistanceTo
Compute the shortest distance between this line segment and a test point. EpsilonEquals
Check that all values in other are within epsilon of the values in this Equals(Object)
Determines whether an object is a line that has the same value as this line.
(Overrides ValueTypeEquals(Object).) Equals(Line)
Determines whether a line has the same value as this line. Extend
Extend the line by custom distances on both sides. ExtendThroughBox(BoundingBox)
Ensure the line extends all the way through a box. Note, this does not result in the shortest possible line that overlaps the box. ExtendThroughBox(Box)
Ensure the line extends all the way through a box. Note, this does not result in the shortest possible line that overlaps the box. ExtendThroughBox(BoundingBox, Double)
Ensure the line extends all the way through a box. Note, this does not result in the shortest possible line that overlaps the box. ExtendThroughBox(Box, Double)
Ensure the line extends all the way through a box. Note, this does not result in the shortest possible line that overlaps the box. Flip
Flip the endpoints of the line segment. GetHashCode
Computes a hash number that represents this line.
(Overrides ValueTypeGetHashCode.) GetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.) MaximumDistanceTo(Line)
Finds the largest distance between this line as a finite segment and another finite segment. MaximumDistanceTo(Point3d)
Finds the largest distance between this line as a finite segment and a test point. MinimumDistanceTo(Line)
Finds the shortest distance between this line as a finite segment and another finite segment. MinimumDistanceTo(Point3d)
Finds the shortest distance between this line as a finite segment and a test point.  PointAt
Evaluates the line at the specified parameter. PointAtLength
Computes a point located at a specific metric distance from the line origin (From).

If line start and end coincide, then the start point is always returned. ToNurbsCurve
Constructs a nurbs curve representation of this line. This amounts to the same as calling NurbsCurve.CreateFromLine(). ToString
Constructs the string representation of this line, in the form "From,To".
(Overrides ValueTypeToString.) ToString(String, IFormatProvider)
Formats the value of the current instance using the specified format. Transform
Transform the line using a Transformation matrix.  TryCreateBetweenCurves
Creates a line segment between a pair of curves such that the line segment is either tangent or perpendicular to each of the curves.  TryFitLineToPoints
Attempt to fit a line through a set of points. TryGetPlane
Gets a plane that contains the line. The origin of the plane is at the start of the line. If possible, a plane parallel to the world XY, YZ, or ZX plane is returned.
