Property (As Integer )
aCurveShape.Order = newIntegerValue
IntegerValue = aCurveShape.Order

Supported for all project types and targets.

The number of off-curve control points that are used.


It is one of the following values:

Value Description
0 A straight line from x,y to x2,y2 is used.
1 A quadratic Bezier curve is drawn using one control point.
2 A cubic Bezier curve is drawn using two control points.

Sample Code

The following method is in the MouseDown event of a Window. It draws a simple curve when the user presses the mouse button. The negative value of ControlY(0) places the control point above the imaginary straight line from x,y to x2,y2.

Var c As New CurveShape
c.ControlX(0) = 120
c.ControlY(0) = -40
c.Order = 1
c.X = 10
c.Y = 100
c.X2 = 250
c.Y2 = 100
