member this.DrawClosedCurve : System.Drawing.Pen * System.Drawing.Point[] * single * System.Drawing.Drawing2D.FillMode -> unit

Parameters

pen
Pen Pen Pen

Pen that determines the color, width, and height of the curve.

points
Point[]

Array of Point structures that define the spline.

tension
Single Single Single

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates red and green pens.

  • Creates seven points to define the curve.

  • Draws seven red straight lines between the seven points to form a polygon.

  • Creates tension and fill mode settings.

  • Draws a green closed curve through the seven points.

The method uses a tension of 1.0 and sets the fill mode to FillMode.Alternate.

Remarks

This method draws a closed cardinal spline that passes through each point in the array. If the last point does not match the first point, an additional curve segment is added from the last point to the first point to close it.

The array of points must contain at least four Point structures.

The tension parameter determines the shape of the spline. If the value of the tension parameter is 0.0F, this method draws straight line segments to connect the points. Usually, the tension parameter is less than or equal to 1.0F. Values over 1.0F produce unusual results.
