Returns 1 if a **geometry** instance is spatially disjoint from another **geometry** instance. Returns 0 if it is not.

## Syntax

```
.STDisjoint ( other_geometry )
```

## Arguments

*other_geometry*

Is another **geometry** instance to compare against the instance on which `STDisjoint()`

is invoked.

## Return Types

SQL Server return type: **bit**

CLR return type: **SqlBoolean**

## Remarks

Two **geometry** instances are disjoint if the intersection of their point sets is empty.

This method always returns null if the spatial reference IDs (SRIDs) of the **geometry** instances do not match.

## Examples

The following example uses `STDisjoint()`

to test two **geometry** instances for spatial disjoint.

```
DECLARE @g geometry;
DECLARE @h geometry;
SET @g = geometry::STGeomFromText('LINESTRING(0 2, 2 0, 4 2)', 0);
SET @h = geometry::STGeomFromText('POINT(1 1)', 0);
SELECT @g.STDisjoint(@h);
```
