ToBezierPoints Method

Summary

Converts the curve points to an array of Bézier points.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
public LeadPoint[] ToBezierPoints() 
Public Function ToBezierPoints() As LeadPoint() 
public: 
array<LeadPoint>^ ToBezierPoints();  

Return Value

An array of LeadPoint values that contain the Bézier points.

Remarks

This method is used to convert a standard curve to an array of Bézier control points. A standard curve (RasterCurveType.Standard) is defined by the current RasterCurve. The standard curve passes through all of the points in the Points collection, and is continuous at each point. This method can be used to draw a curve by converting it to an array of Bézier points, using System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawBeziers to draw the equivalent Bezier(s).

Example

This sample draws a smooth closed curve on a graphics that goes through five points.
