# how to do method "distinct<>" for objects Autodesk.AutoCAD.Geometry.Point2d ?

I have this:

```  #region IEquatable<Points> Members

public bool Equals(Points other)
{
if (Object.ReferenceEquals(other, null)) return false;

if (Object.ReferenceEquals(this, other)) return true;

return this.PointNumber.Equals(other.PointNumber);
}

public override int GetHashCode()
{
int hashDescription = this.PointNumber == null ? 0 : this.PointNumber.GetHashCode();

return hashDescription;
}

#endregion```

to distinct repeat cogo points(civil 3d) about its PointNumber.

Now, I want the same but Point2d Collection, however it doesn´t work:

```namespace toolsC3D
{
public class Vertex : IEquatable<Vertex>
{
#region IEquatable<Vertex> Members

public bool Equals(Vertex other)
{
if (Object.ReferenceEquals(other, null)) return false;

if (Object.ReferenceEquals(this, other)) return true;

return this.punto2d.Equals(other.punto2d);
}

public override int GetHashCode()
{
int hashDescription = this.punto2d == null ? 0 : this.punto2d.GetHashCode();

return hashDescription;
}

#endregion

{
get { return mipunto2d; }
set { mipunto2d = value; }
}

}
}```

How can I delete all repeated location of point2D in a point2d Collection?

Can I do distinct with both conditions?  point2d.X and point2d.Y?

I have seen that Point2dCollection has IsEqual() method but I don´t know how I could use it.

Hi;

Try something like this. (I'm not tested this code):

```public Point2dCollection RemoveDuplicates(Point2dCollection coll)
{
var distinctItems = coll.ToArray().Distinct(new Point2DComparer());
var c = distinctItems.ToArray();
return new Point2dCollection(c);
}
class Point2DComparer : IEqualityComparer<Point2d>
{
public bool Equals(Point2d pt1, Point2d pt2)
{
return System.Math.Abs(pt1.X - pt2.X) < 0.0001
&& System.Math.Abs(pt1.Y - pt2.Y) < 0.0001;
}
public int GetHashCode(Point2d pt)
{
return pt.GetHashCode();
}
}```

Hi,

you can also use the Point2d.IsEqualTo(Point2d a) or Point2d.IsEqualTo (Point2d a, Tolerance tolerance) method.

Yes, but I have points in the same collection. Perhaps I have to clone or copy collection and compare them to each other with IsEqual().

You can use one of these overloaded RemoveDuplicates() extension methods.

They return a Point2d lazy sequence (IEnumerable<Point2d>) which can be iterated with foreach or converted into a Point2d array or list.

They can be called as a Point2dCollection instance method, a Point2d[] instance method or a List<Point2d> instance method.

A Tolerance can be passed as argument to be used for equality comparison, if none argument is passed the Tolerence.Global is used.

```    public static class Point2dExtensions
{
private static Tolerance tolerance;

public static IEnumerable<Point2d> RemoveDuplicates(this Point2dCollection source)
{
return source.Cast<Point2d>().RemoveDuplicates(Tolerance.Global);
}

public static IEnumerable<Point2d> RemoveDuplicates(this Point2dCollection source, Tolerance tolerance)
{
return source.Cast<Point2d>().RemoveDuplicates(tolerance);
}

public static IEnumerable<Point2d> RemoveDuplicates(this IEnumerable<Point2d> source)
{
return source.RemoveDuplicates(Tolerance.Global);
}

public static IEnumerable<Point2d> RemoveDuplicates(this IEnumerable<Point2d> source, Tolerance tolerance)
{
if (source == null)
throw new ArgumentNullException("source");
Point2dExtensions.tolerance = tolerance;
return source.Distinct(new Point2dComparer());
}

class Point2dComparer : IEqualityComparer<Point2d>
{
public bool Equals(Point2d a, Point2d b)
{
return a.IsEqualTo(b, Point2dExtensions.tolerance);
}

public int GetHashCode(Point2d pt)
{
return 0;
}
}
}```

If you want to use the HashCode in the equality comparison, you can replace the Point2dequalityComparer with this one (but I'm not sure it's more efficient).

```        class Point2dComparer : IEqualityComparer<Point2d>
{
public bool Equals(Point2d a, Point2d b)
{
return a.IsEqualTo(b, Point2dExtensions.tolerance);
}

public int GetHashCode(Point2d pt)
{
return new Point2d(Round(pt.X), Round(pt.Y)).GetHashCode();
}

private double prec = Point2dExtensions.tolerance.EqualPoint * 10.0;

private double Round(double num)
{
if (prec == 0.0)
return num;
else
return Math.Floor(num / prec + 0.5) * prec;
}
}```

gile, I have already tried both code amb both doesn´t work.

I have 12 vertex and 2 repited vertex and returns equally 12.

I use this, but I think that it shoud be something more efficient;

``` public static void RemoveDuplicates(this Point2dCollection source)
{
for (int i = 0; i <= source.Count - 1; i++)
{
for (int k = 0; k <= source.Count - 1; k++)
{
if (k > i)
{
if(source[i].IsEqualTo(source[k]))
{
source.RemoveAt(k);
k--;
}
}
}
}
}```

Sorry, your method works fine. Could it be possible to do the same (distinct) for point3dcollection and objectIdCollection?

Hi;

For Point3DCollection, do this changes:

```public Point3dCollection RemoveDuplicates(Point3dCollection collection)
{
var a = collection.Cast<Point3d>();
var distinctItems = a.Distinct(new Point3DComparer());
var c = distinctItems.ToArray();
return new Point3dCollection(c);
}```

```private class Point3DComparer : IEqualityComparer<Point3d>
{

public bool Equals(Point3d pt1, Point3d pt2)
{
return System.Math.Abs(pt1.X - pt2.X) < 0.0001
&& System.Math.Abs(pt1.Y - pt2.Y) < 0.0001
&& System.Math.Abs(pt1.Z - pt2.Z) < 0.0001;
}

public int GetHashCode(Point3d point)
{
return point.GetHashCode();
}
}```

Chears...
