BUILT-IN MATHEMATICA SYMBOL

JoinedCurve

JoinedCurve[{segment1, segment2, ...}]
represents a curve consisting of followed by etc.

JoinedCurve[{component1, component2, ...}]
represents a list of separate component curves , , etc.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• JoinedCurve can be used in Graphics (two-dimensional graphics).
• JoinedCurve[segment] is equivalent to JoinedCurve[{segment}].
• Possible forms of include:
•  Line[{pt1,pt2,...}] lines BezierCurve[{pt1,pt2,...},...] Bézier curve BSplineCurve[{pt1,pt2,...},...] B-spline curve
• The first point on is taken to be the last point on . JoinedCurve[{pr1[{p1, ..., pi}], pr2[{q1, ..., qj}], ...}] is equivalent to JoinedCurve[{pr1[{p1, ..., pi}], pr2[{pi, q1, ..., qj}], ...}].
• The setting JoinedCurve[{component1, component2, ...}, CurveClosed->{close1, close2, ...}] specifies whether individual component curves should be closed.
• JoinedCurve[{component1, ...}, CurveClosed->close] indicates that all component curves should be closed.
• The coordinates can be specified using:
•  {x,y} ordinary coordinates Scaled[{x,y}] scaled coordinates ImageScaled[{x,y}] image-scaled coordinates Offset[{dx,dy},{x,y}] absolute offset coordinates
• Individual coordinates and lists of coordinates in segments can be Dynamic objects.
• Curve thickness can be specified using Thickness or AbsoluteThickness, as well as Thick, Thin, etc.
• Curve dashing can be specified using Dashing or AbsoluteDashing, as well as Dashed, Dotted, etc.
• Curve coloring and transparency can be specified using CMYKColor, GrayLevel, Hue, Opacity, or RGBColor.
• Joining of curve segments can be specified using JoinForm.
• Curve caps can be specified using CapForm.
• VertexColors and VertexNormals options to Line will have no effect within a JoinedCurve construct.
