Custom number of control points

Jan 18, 2016 at 12:08 PM
Hello,

I'm using NShape for my bachelor degree work.

I'm trying to create circle shape only with 4 control points. I dont know which approach is better:
create own circle shape or edit current one.

Which methods and properties should I change?

Thanks for any answers.

I would recommend to create your own shape library (see NShape Documentation, "NShapeLibraryInitializer class") and derive your shape from one of the Base classes in the Core assembly. Implement the HasControlPointCapability to define how the control points should behave (see NShape Documentation, "Programmer Tasks > Developing a New Shape Class > Defining the Control Points").

Thanks it's working now. But how can I forbid to connect for example Linear Sahpe to edge of circle .

I assume you mean shape-to-shape connections (the line sticks to the shape itself instead to a control point)?
Adjust the ControlPointCapabilities of the ReferencePoint.

Yes I mean point-to-shape connections. But now I don't know how should I adjust it. In HasControlPointCapability ?

Yes, in HasControlPointCapability:
Adjust the ControlPointCapabilities of ControlPointIds.ReferencePoint.
