Parent ValueType

Interfaces IEquatable<Line2D>

This structure represents a line between two points in 2-space. It allows for operations such as computing the length, direction, projections to, comparisons, and shifting by a vector.

Line2D(Point2D startPoint, Point2D endPoint)

Initializes a new instance of the Line2D struct. Throws an ArgumentException if the startPoint is equal to the endPoint.
Parameters
Point2D startPoint

the starting point of the line segment.

Point2D endPoint

the ending point of the line segment

Public Static Functions

Line2D Parse(string startPointString, string endPointString)

Returns a new Line2D from a pair of strings which represent points. See Parse for details on acceptable formats.
Parameters
string startPointString

The string representation of the first point.

string endPointString

The string representation of the second point.

Return
Line2D

A line segment from the first point to the second point.

Public Methods

Point2D ClosestPointTo(Point2D p, bool mustBeOnSegment)

Returns the closest point on the line to the given point.
Parameters
Point2D p

The point that the returned point is the closest point on the line to

bool mustBeOnSegment

If true the returned point is contained by the segment ends, otherwise it can be anywhere on the projected line

Return
Point2D

The closest point on the line to the provided point

bool Equals(Line2D other)

bool Equals(object obj)

int GetHashCode()

Type GetType()

Nullable<Point2D> IntersectWith(Line2D other)

Compute the intersection between two lines with parallelism considered by the double floating point precision on the cross product of the two directions.
Parameters
Line2D other

The other line to compute the intersection with

Return
Nullable<Point2D>

The point at the intersection of two lines, or null if the lines are parallel.

Nullable<Point2D> IntersectWith(Line2D other, Angle tolerance)

Compute the intersection between two lines if the angle between them is greater than a specified angle tolerance.
Parameters
Line2D other

The other line to compute the intersection with

Angle tolerance

The tolerance used when checking if the lines are parallel

Return
Nullable<Point2D>

The point at the intersection of two lines, or null if the lines are parallel.

bool IsParallelTo(Line2D other)

Checks to determine whether or not two lines are parallel to each other, using the dot product within the double precision specified in the MathNet.Numerics package.
Parameters
Line2D other

The other line to check this one against

Return
bool

True if the lines are parallel, false if they are not

bool IsParallelTo(Line2D other, Angle tolerance)

Checks to determine whether or not two lines are parallel to each other within a specified angle tolerance
Parameters
Line2D other

The other line to check this one against

Angle tolerance

If the angle between line directions is less than this value, the method returns true

Return
bool

True if the lines are parallel within the angle tolerance, false if they are not

Line2D LineTo(Point2D p, bool mustStartBetweenAndEnd)

Returns the shortest line between this line and a point.
Parameters
Point2D p

the point to create a line to

bool mustStartBetweenAndEnd

If false the start point can extend beyond the start and endpoint of the line

Return
Line2D

The shortest line between the line and the point
