##### Need your help,Object Connect&Draw pline
« on: March 10, 2011, 08:57:04 PM »
Hi,All
I need to connect some LWPOLYLINES just like my animation.Maybe It's mentioned as the Alan's topic about grread :
http://www.theswamp.org/index.php?topic=33469.0
I just want some code to help me drawing such a closed pline.I've try it by myself several days,but I found that I can do nothing.
Is there some useful code or idea?
And I will stay online and keep Refreshing the  Screen and waiting for your suggestion (code) .

And ,It's my code to draw pline.It's not what I want! Because I must to do that for several steps as my animation.

1. Make a selection of the polylines, that form the letter shape.
2. Explode them and make a selection of those lines.
3. Loop into all those lines, and find the ones that are collinear and make a set of lists of those groups.
4. Loop into the sets of collinear groups and find the extreme points and make a pair of points lists.
5. Then just draw lines from each pair of points.

HTH.

Can you make this routine for me?
I'm shy to say that...

alternative
2a. remove duplicates, ie. if line 1 is a duplicate of line 2 remove both lines. This will get rid of the interior lines. There could be more than 1 duplicate of a line, get rid of those too.
3a. pedit join the selection, shape outline is a polyline.
3b. iterate new pline, checking segment angle, remove segment runs that have the same angle. Repeat for rest of pline segments.

hi you can use the TSP way to get it . if you just to get a bold text frame , you can use wmfout&in then tanslate into regions , union , andthen trans... into PLine .

That's nice, but guess it is better to allow the OP to try it first, post his/her code/efforts, then show or provide hints, pseudo code, semi solutions, that way he/she/all can learn, not just to simply providing an out of box solution and do his/her homework, have seen these type of posting lately here, instead why not post those on the 'show your stuff', that way at least they can look good.

Maybe it is me, but take it as there it is just two cents.

I just think people can not do too much duplication of effort, the Giants always stand on the shoulders of great men, I hope we are all giants.

Hi Luis
The idea that you bring to me is good .I just think that I couldn't do this work with one step.The efforts is just like my second post in this topic.I'm not satisfied with it.
As the fact ,I really try all by myself.
Thanks.

Good solution !!
Would be nice if you could credit the original author

You are correct ; we all stand on the shoulders of giants to some degree.

From the coding style it looks like Evgeniy, but I could be way off

You are right , Lee .
The 'TSP' code I got it before I came in TheSwamp , So I'm sorry to forget the author .
by the way , I test the code again and again , it take wrong result , when the points is much .
I try to use the General genetic algorithm , but up to now, I have not done it .
