Namespace:  AForge.Math.Geometry
Assembly:  AForge.Math (in AForge.Math.dll) Version: 2.2.5.0 (2.2.5.0)

Syntax

C#
public float DistanceToPoint(
	Point point
)

Parameters

point
Type: AForge..::.Point
The point to calculate distance to.

Return Value

Returns the Euclidean distance between this line and the specified point. Unlike DistanceToPoint(Point), this returns the distance from the infinite line. (0,0) is 0 units from the line defined by (0,5) and (0,8), but is 5 units from the segment with those endpoints.
