Public methodDispose
Actively reclaims unmanaged resources that this instance uses.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Protected methodDispose(Boolean)
For derived class implementers.

This method is called with argument true when class user calls Dispose(), while with argument false when the Garbage Collector invokes the finalizer, or Finalize() method.

You must reclaim all used unmanaged resources in both cases, and can use this chance to call Dispose on disposable fields if the argument is true.

Also, you must call the base virtual method within your overriding method.

(Inherited from CommonObject.)

In Rhino for Windows, this member is overridden by Dispose(Boolean).
Public methodDuplicate
Constructs a deep (full) copy of this object.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodDuplicateShallow
Constructs a light copy of this object. By "light", it is meant that the same underlying data is used until something is done to attempt to change it. For example, you could have a shallow copy of a very heavy mesh object and the same underlying data will be used when doing things like inspecting the number of faces on the mesh. If you modify the location of one of the mesh vertices, the shallow copy will create a full duplicate of the underlying mesh data and the shallow copy will become a deep copy.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodEnsurePrivateCopy
If you want to keep a copy of this class around by holding onto it in a variable after a command completes, call EnsurePrivateCopy to make sure that this class is not tied to the document. You can call this function as many times as you want.
(Inherited from CommonObject.)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodExplode
Explodes this text entity into an array of curves.
Protected methodFinalize
Passively reclaims unmanaged resources when the class user did not explicitly call Dispose().
(Inherited from CommonObject.)

(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodCode exampleGetBoundingBox(Plane)
Aligned Boundingbox solver. Gets the plane aligned boundingbox.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodGetBoundingBox(Transform)
Aligned Boundingbox solver. Gets the world axis aligned boundingbox for the transformed geometry.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)

In Rhino for Windows, this member is overridden by GetBoundingBox(Transform).
Public methodGetBoundingBox(Plane, Box)
Aligned Boundingbox solver. Gets the plane aligned boundingbox.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodGetDimensionStyle
Return the proper dimension style from which to get properties for this annotation object If this object has style overrides, those will be included in the returned dimension style and the style will be updated to include the current state of the parent style for non-overridden fields
(Inherited from AnnotationBase.)

In Rhino for Windows, this member is overridden by NonConstOperation.
Protected methodOnSwitchToNonConst
Is called when a non-const operation occurs.
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodRotate
Rotates the object about the specified axis. A positive rotation angle results in a counter-clockwise rotation about the axis (right hand rule).
(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodScale

(Inherited from GeometryBase.)
Public methodSetBold
(Inherited from AnnotationBase.)
