```Point3d p; // Given point

Curve crv; // Given curve, eg. Line, Polyline, Circle, etc...

Point3d pNear = crv.GetClosestPointTo(p);

if (pNear.DistanceTo(p) < Tolerance.Global.EqualPoint)
{

// Point is on Curve

}```

Hi Alexander,

Thankyou so much for the reply but if i declare pNear as Point3d, GetClosestPointTo() function doesnt accept as it returns PointOnCurve3d and if i declare pNear as Point3d i cant access DistanceTo() function.Kindly help.

Thanks

```using System;

[assembly: CommandClass(typeof(Rivilis.CurveUtils))]

namespace Rivilis
{
public class CurveUtils
{
[CommandMethod("PointOnCurve")]
public void MyCommand() // This method can have any name
{
Document doc = Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument;
Editor ed = doc.Editor;

PromptEntityOptions peOpt = new PromptEntityOptions("\nSelect curve: ");
PromptEntityResult peRes = ed.GetEntity(peOpt);
if (peRes.Status != PromptStatus.OK) return;

PromptPointResult ppRes = ed.GetPoint("\bPick point: ");
if (ppRes.Status != PromptStatus.OK) return;

Point3d p = ppRes.Value.TransformBy(ed.CurrentUserCoordinateSystem);

using (Transaction tr = doc.TransactionManager.StartTransaction()) {

Curve crv = tr.GetObject(peRes.ObjectId, OpenMode.ForRead) as Curve;
if (crv != null) {
Point3d pNear = crv.GetClosestPointTo(p, false);
if (pNear.DistanceTo(p) < Tolerance.Global.EqualPoint) {
ed.WriteMessage("\nPoint is on Curve");
} else {
ed.WriteMessage("\nPoint is not on Curve");
}
}
}
}
}
}
```

Hi,

If i have 2 points on the same line the code is working fine for 1 point and for the other point it is not satisfying the condition ("if (pNear.DistanceTo(p) < Tolerance.Global.EqualPoint)") even though the second point is on the given line.I am not able to figure out why this is happening.I will be grateful for replies.

Thanks Gulzar

Ok! You can replace in code Tolerance.Global.EqualPoint with 0.001 (or other small value).

Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the reply.What i meant when i said that it is not satisfying the condition ("(pNear.DistanceTo(p) < Tolerance.Global.EqualPoint)") is distance is coming greater than tolerance value(for example 100).Even though the point is on the line for which im checking.I dont know why this is happening.

Thanks

I think the line and a point are in 3D. Double check the coordinates of the given point and the nearest point on the line.
