ParityRegion Class

  • A ParityRegion is a collection of Loop objects.
  • The loops collectively define a planar region.
  • A point is "in" the composite region if it is "in" an odd number of the loops.

see Curve Collections learning article.

Inherited properties

Name Type Inherited from Description
geometryCategory Readonly "curveCollection" CurveCollection String name for schema properties
isAnyRegionType Accessor ReadOnly boolean CurveCollection Return true for planar region types:
* Loop
* ParityRegion
* UnionRegion
isClosedPath Accessor ReadOnly boolean CurveCollection Return true for a single-loop planar region type, i.e. Loop.
* This is _not- a test for physical closure of a Path
isInner boolean CurveCollection Flag for inner loop status.
isOpenPath Accessor ReadOnly boolean CurveCollection Return true for a Path, i.e. a chain of curves joined head-to-tail
