This element is used to provide a constructor for the pole point of a line with respect to a conic or a circle.

Defined in: point.js.
Extends JXG.Point.

Element Detail
PolePoint
The pole point is the unique reciprocal relationship of a line with respect to a conic. The lines tangent to the intersections of a conic and a line intersect at the pole point of that line with respect to that conic. A line tangent to a conic has the pole point of that line with respect to that conic as the tangent point. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pole_and_polar for more information on pole and polar.
This element has no direct constructor. To create an instance of this element you have to call JXG.Board#create with type "polepoint".

Possible parent array combinations are:
{JXG.Conic|JXG.Circle} el1
{JXG.Point} el2

or


{JXG.Point} el1
{JXG.Conic|JXG.Circle} el2

The result will be the pole point of the line with respect to the conic or the circle.


Throws:
{Exception}
If the element cannot be constructed with the given parent objects an exception is thrown.
Examples:
// Create the pole point of a line with respect to a conic
var p1 = board.create('point', [-1, 2]);
var p2 = board.create('point', [ 1, 4]);
var p3 = board.create('point', [-1,-2]);
var p4 = board.create('point', [ 0, 0]);
var p5 = board.create('point', [ 4,-2]);
var c1 = board.create('conic',[p1,p2,p3,p4,p5]);
var p6 = board.create('point', [-1, 4]);
var p7 = board.create('point', [2, -2]);
var l1 = board.create('line', [p6, p7]);
var p8 = board.create('polepoint', [c1, l1]);

				
				
// Create the pole point of a line with respect to a circle
var p1 = board.create('point', [1, 1]);
var p2 = board.create('point', [2, 3]);
var c1 = board.create('circle',[p1,p2]);
var p3 = board.create('point', [-1, 4]);
var p4 = board.create('point', [4, -1]);
var l1 = board.create('line', [p3, p4]);
var p5 = board.create('polepoint', [c1, l1]);
