Description

Inserts a new vertex into polygon or polyline. If the vertexType is nonzero, it will convert the objectHandle into a polyline.
PROCEDURE InsertVertex(
objectHandle  :HANDLE;
x  :REAL;
y  :REAL;
beforeVertexNum  :INTEGER;
vertexType  :INTEGER;
arcRadius  :REAL);
def vs.InsertVertex(objectHandle, x, y, beforeVertexNum, vertexType, arcRadius):
    return None

Parameters

objectHandle HANDLE Handle to the polygon or polyline
x REAL X-coordinate of the vertex to add
y REAL Y-coordinate of the vertex to add
beforeVertexNum INTEGER Vertex number before which the new vertex is to be inserted
vertexType INTEGER Vertex type of the new vertex: 0 =Corner; 1= Bezier; 2= Cubic; 3= Arc;
arcRadius REAL For arc vertices, the radius of the arc

Remarks

Orso, 2010 Dec. 23) The routine also when used for adding an arc vertex needs a correction of the arc passed:
  • pass "0" --> a radius for arc on circle by three points will be autogenerated
  • pass anything else (custom radius): you need to convert the radius to mm:
    • arcRadius := arcRadius / upi * 25.4;
