Assembly: AeccDbMgd (in AeccDbMgd.dll) Version: 10.3.488.0

Syntax

C#
public ProfileTangent AddFixedTangent(
	Point2d startPoint,
	Point2d endPoint
)
Visual Basic
Public Function AddFixedTangent ( _
	startPoint As Point2d, _
	endPoint As Point2d _
) As ProfileTangent
Visual C++
public:
ProfileTangent^ AddFixedTangent(
	Point2d startPoint, 
	Point2d endPoint
)

Parameters

startPoint
Type: Point2d
The first pass-through point.
endPoint
Type: Point2d
The second pass-through point.

Remarks

Point2d.X and Point2d.Y are the profile's station and elevation respectively.
