Module: db
Description: An edge class
An edge is a connection between points, usually participating in a larger context such as a polygon. An edge has a defined direction (from p1 to p2). Edges play a role in the database as parts of polygons and to describe a line through both points. The Edge object is also used inside the boolean processor (EdgeProcessor). Although supported, edges are rarely used as individual database objects.
See The Database API for more details about the database objects like the Edge class.

| |||||
== | Signature: [const] bool == (const DEdge e) Description: Equality test
| |||||
_const_cast | Signature: [const] DEdge ptr _const_cast Description: Returns a non-const reference to self. Basically, this method allows turning a const object reference to a non-const one. This method is provided as last resort to remove the constness from an object. Usually there is a good reason for a const object reference, so using this method may have undesired side effects. This method has been introduced in version 0.29.6. | |||||
_create | Signature: void _create Description: Ensures the C++ object is created Use this method to ensure the C++ object is created, for example to ensure that resources are allocated. Usually C++ objects are created on demand and not necessarily when the script object is created. | |||||
_destroy | Signature: void _destroy Description: Explicitly destroys the object Explicitly destroys the object on C++ side if it was owned by the script interpreter. Subsequent access to this object will throw an exception. If the object is not owned by the script, this method will do nothing. | |||||
_destroyed? | Signature: [const] bool _destroyed? Description: Returns a value indicating whether the object was already destroyed This method returns true, if the object was destroyed, either explicitly or by the C++ side. The latter may happen, if the object is owned by a C++ object which got destroyed itself. | |||||
_is_const_object? | Signature: [const] bool _is_const_object? Description: Returns a value indicating whether the reference is a const reference This method returns true, if self is a const reference. In that case, only const methods may be called on self. | |||||
_manage | Signature: void _manage Description: Marks the object as managed by the script side. After calling this method on an object, the script side will be responsible for the management of the object. This method may be called if an object is returned from a C++ function and the object is known not to be owned by any C++ instance. If necessary, the script side may delete the object if the script's reference is no longer required. Usually it's not required to call this method. It has been introduced in version 0.24. | |||||
_unmanage | Signature: void _unmanage Description: Marks the object as no longer owned by the script side. Calling this method will make this object no longer owned by the script's memory management. Instead, the object must be managed in some other way. Usually this method may be called if it is known that some C++ object holds and manages this object. Technically speaking, this method will turn the script's reference into a weak reference. After the script engine decides to delete the reference, the object itself will still exist. If the object is not managed otherwise, memory leaks will occur. Usually it's not required to call this method. It has been introduced in version 0.24. | |||||
assign | Signature: void assign (const DEdge other) Description: Assigns another object to self | |||||
bbox | Signature: [const] DBox bbox Description: Return the bounding box of the edge. | |||||

This method has been introduced in version 0.26.2. | |||||
clipped_line | Signature: [const] variant clipped_line (const DBox box) Description: Returns the line through the edge clipped at the given box
In contrast to clipped, this method will consider the edge extended infinitely (a "line"). The returned edge will be the part of this line going through the box. This method has been introduced in version 0.26.2. | |||||
coincident? | Signature: [const] bool coincident? (const DEdge e) Description: Coincidence check.
Checks whether a edge is coincident with another edge. Coincidence is defined by being parallel and that at least one point of one edge is on the other edge. | |||||
contains? | Signature: [const] bool contains? (const DPoint p) Description: Tests whether a point is on an edge.
A point is on a edge if it is on (or at least closer than a grid point to) the edge. | |||||
contains_excl? | Signature: [const] bool contains_excl? (const DPoint p) Description: Tests whether a point is on an edge excluding the endpoints.
A point is on a edge if it is on (or at least closer than a grid point to) the edge. | |||||
create | Signature: void create Description: Ensures the C++ object is created Use of this method is deprecated. Use _create instead Use this method to ensure the C++ object is created, for example to ensure that resources are allocated. Usually C++ objects are created on demand and not necessarily when the script object is created. | |||||
crossed_by? | Signature: [const] bool crossed_by? (const DEdge e) Description: Checks, if the line given by self is crossed by the edge e
self if considered an infinite line. This predicate renders true if the edge e is cut by this line. In other words: this method returns true if e.p1 is in one semispace of self while e.p2 is in the other or one of them is exactly on self. | |||||
crossing_point | Signature: [const] DPoint crossing_point (const DEdge e) Description: Returns the crossing point on two edges.
This method delivers the point where the given line (self) crosses the edge given by the argument "e". self is considered infinitely long and is required to cut through the edge "e". If self does not cut this line, the result is undefined. See crossed_by? for a description of the crossing predicate. This method has been introduced in version 0.19. | |||||
cut_point | Signature: [const] variant cut_point (const DEdge e) Description: Returns the intersection point of the lines through the two edges.
This method delivers the intersection point between the lines through the two edges. If the lines are parallel and do not intersect, the result will be nil. In contrast to intersection_point, this method will regard the edges as infinitely extended and intersection is not confined to the edge span. This method has been introduced in version 0.27.1. | |||||
d | Signature: [const] DVector d Description: Gets the edge extension as a vector. This method is equivalent to p2 - p1. This method has been introduced in version 0.26.2. | |||||
destroy | Signature: void destroy Description: Explicitly destroys the object Use of this method is deprecated. Use _destroy instead Explicitly destroys the object on C++ side if it was owned by the script interpreter. Subsequent access to this object will throw an exception. If the object is not owned by the script, this method will do nothing. | |||||
destroyed? | Signature: [const] bool destroyed? Description: Returns a value indicating whether the object was already destroyed Use of this method is deprecated. Use _destroyed? instead This method returns true, if the object was destroyed, either explicitly or by the C++ side.

distance | Signature: [const] double distance (const DPoint p) Description: Gets the distance of the point from the line through the edge.
Returns the distance between the edge and the point. The distance is signed which is negative if the point is to the "right" of the edge and positive if the point is to the "left". The distance is measured by projecting the point onto the line through the edge. If the edge is degenerated, the distance is not defined. This method considers the edge to define an infinite line running through it. distance returns the distance of 'p' to this line. A similar method is euclidian_distance, but the latter regards the edge a finite set of points between the endpoints. | |||||

euclidian_distance | Signature: double euclidian_distance (const DPoint p) Description: Gets the distance of the point from the the edge.
Returns the minimum distance of the point to any point on the edge. Unlike distance, the edge is considered a finite set of points between the endpoints. The result is also not signed like it is the case for distance. This method has been introduced in version 0.28.14. | |||||
extend | Signature: DEdge extend (double d) Description: Extends the edge (modifies self)
Extends the edge by the given distance and returns the extended edge. The edge is not modified. Extending means that the first point is shifted by -d along the edge, the second by d.

intersect? | Signature: [const] bool intersect? (const DEdge e) Description: Intersection test.
Use of this method is deprecated. Use intersects? instead Returns true if the edges intersect. Two edges intersect if they share at least one point. If the edges coincide, they also intersect.
