Angle Class

PSEUDO

Extends Sector
Module: JXG

The angle element is used to denote an angle defined by three points. Visually it is just a Sector element with a radius not defined by the parent elements but by an attribute radius. As opposed to the sector, an angle has two angle points and no radius point. Sector is displayed if type=="sector". If type=="square", instead of a sector a parallelogram is displayed. In case of type=="auto", a square is displayed if the angle is near orthogonal. If no name is provided the angle label is automatically set to a lower greek letter.

Constructor

Angle

(
  • p1,p2,p1
  • line,
)

Parameters:

  • p1,p2,p1 JXG.Point_JXG.Point_JXG.Point

    An angle is always drawn counterclockwise from p1 to p3 around p2.

    Second possibility of input parameters are:

  • line, JXG.Line_JXG.Line_array | Number_array | Number

    line2, coords1 or direction1, coords2 or direction2, radius The angle is defined by two lines. The two legs which define the angle are given by two coordinate arrays. The points given by these coordinate arrays are projected initially (i.e. only once) onto the two lines. The other possibility is to supply directions (+/- 1).

Throws:

Error:

If the element cannot be constructed with the given parent objects an exception is thrown. First possiblity of input parameters are:

Example:

// Create an angle out of three free points
        var p1 = board.create('point', [5.0, 3.0]),
            p2 = board.create('point', [1.0, 0.5]),
            p3 = board.create('point', [1.5, 5.0]),
        
            a = board.create('angle', [p1, p2, p3]),
            t = board.create('text', [4, 4, function() { return a.Value().toFixed(2); }]);
        
// Create an angle out of two lines and two directions
         var p1 = board.create('point', [-1, 4]),
             p2 = board.create('point', [4, 1]),
             q1 = board.create('point', [-2, -3]),
             q2 = board.create('point', [4,3]),
        
             li1 = board.create('line', [p1,p2], {strokeColor:'black', lastArrow:true}),
             li2 = board.create('line', [q1,q2], {lastArrow:true}),
        
             a1 = board.create('angle', [li1, li2, [5.5, 0], [4, 3]], { radius:1 }),
             a2 = board.create('angle', [li1, li2, 1, -1], { radius:2 });
