public interface ICircularArc
Provides access to members that control properties of circular arcs.
A CircularArc is an object that describes any portion of a circle. The size of the CircularArc is determined by the length of the Radius and the Central Angle. CircularArcs can be constructed by numerous different methods given a wide variety of input parameters. A CircularArc differs from an EllipticArc in that every point along the CircularArc must be a fixed distance (the Radius) from the CenterPoint.

Method Detail 

void queryCoords(IPoint center, IPoint from, IPoint to, boolean[] isCCW, boolean[] isMinor) throws IOException, AutomationException
QueryCoords returns the Center Point, the From Point, the To Point, the value of IsCounterClockwise, and the value of IsMinor for the Circular Arc.
These are the necessary inputs for PutCoords, except in special cases (half circle, full circle, and Central Angle = 0) where the ArcOrientation must know which of these cases exists to ensure that the desired Circular Arc is unambiguous.
isCCW stands for "is counter clockwise"

void putCoords(IPoint center, IPoint from, IPoint to, int arcOrientation) throws IOException, AutomationException
Use to create a Circular Arc by specifying the Center Point, From Point, To Point, and ArcOrientation. Care must be taken to ensure that the ArcOrientation is not ambiguous (For halfcircles, ArcOrientation must be either Clockwise or CounterClockwise, and when the From Point and To Point are the same, ArcOrientation must be either Minor or Major.).
If the FromPoint, ToPoint and CenterPoint specified do not create a circle, the created arc will have its CenterPoint adjusted until the FromPoint and ToPoint can be accomodated on the same circle. Therefore the resultant arcs CenterPoint may not be exactly the same as the input CenterPoint.

void queryCoordsByAngle(IPoint center, double[] fromAngle, double[] centerAngle, double[] arcRadius) throws IOException, AutomationException

void putCoordsByAngle(IPoint cp, double fromAngle, double centralAngle, double arcRadius) throws IOException, AutomationException
PutCoordsByAngle creates a Circular Arc given the Center Point, the From Angle, the Central Angle, and the Radius.
PutCoordsByAngle is one of the easiest ways to create a desired Circular Arc. However, due to numeric accuracy limitations of computers and trigonometric functions, the From and To Points may be very slightly offset from the expected coordinates. This is important to keep in mind when attempting to connect the endpoints to other segments.

void putRadiusByPoint(IPoint radialPoint) throws IOException, AutomationException
PutRadiusByPoint sets the Radius of the Circular Arc to be the distance between the Center Point and the input Point. This has the same effect as setting the Radius using the Radius property of the Circular Arc.

IOException
 If there are interop problems.
AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.IPoint getCenterPoint() throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns the Center Point of the CircularArc. The Center Point is the Point equidistant from all other points on the CircularArc, and it is the point from which the Radius is measured.

 If there are interop problems.
AutomationException
 If the ArcObject component throws an exception.void queryCenterPoint(IPoint center) throws IOException, AutomationException
Returns the Center Point of the CircularArc. The Center Point is the Point equidistant from all other points on the CircularArc, and it is the point from which the Radius is measured.
Note: The output geometry must be cocreated prior to the query. The output geometry is not cocreated by the method; it is populated. This can be used in performance critical situations. For example, creating the geometry only once outside a loop and use the query method could improve performance.
