# Polyline with Arc

Hi everyone,

I'm having a problem when I create polyline with arc using vb.net. The arc is a quarter of ellipse. Please see picture below for detail.

Thanks any helps.

Please use plain text.

An ellipse is not an arc and cannot be joined to a polyline.

Maybe you can try to facet the ellipse. With this you turn the ellipse into a polyline that's almost (but not exactly!) following the same path as the ellipse.

Here's an excellent explanation, including some code...

How about SPLINE! Can we create a spline like blue arc (in picture)?

Thanks,

Hi,

Have a look at the GeometryExtensions library, specialy the PolylineSegment and PolylineSegmentCollection classes.

There's an example on how to use them here.

Thank for help. Are there any way to draw only a quarter of ellipse.

You can set the StartAngle and EndAngle properties of the Ellipse instance. Angles are measured in radians CCW from the MajorAxis vector.
