Appends a straight line segment and an arc representing a portion of an ellipse specified by radius and center to the current path.

Namespace:  BitMiracle.Docotic.Pdf
Assembly:  BitMiracle.Docotic.Pdf (in BitMiracle.Docotic.Pdf.dll)


public void AppendArc(
	PointF center,
	float radiusX,
	float radiusY,
	float startAngle,
	float sweepAngle
Public Sub AppendArc ( 
	center As PointF,
	radiusX As Single,
	radiusY As Single,
	startAngle As Single,
	sweepAngle As Single


Type: System.Drawing.PointF
The center of the ellipse.
Type: System.Single
The radius of the ellipse measured along the x-axis.
Type: System.Single
The radius of the ellipse measured along the y-axis.
Type: System.Single
The start angle of the arc in degrees.
Type: System.Single
The sweep angle of the arc in degrees.


The line segment is added from the CurrentPosition to the beginning of the arc. The arc extends along the perimeter of an ellipse with the given radius and center. The length of the arc is defined by the given start and sweep angles.

Note that the call to this method does not place any marks on the canvas; only the painting operators (StrokePath(), CloseAndStrokePath(), FillPath(), FillAndStrokePath()) do that.

Please use DrawArc() if you want to draw an arc immediately.
