I need  to find Start angle and End angle for the ARC with known Radius(r),Center point(x0,y0),Start(x1,y1) and End(x2,y2) points of the ARC.


Please help me.

Thank you.

Hi shean85,
Are you using ObjectArx? Cause if so, you can :

dStartAngle = (Start - Center).angleTo(AcGeVector2d::kXAxis);
dEndAngle = (End - Center).angleTo(AcGeVector2d::kXAxis);

where Start, Center, End are AcGePoint2d.
Radius information is useless/redundant.

Hi shean85,

with this function you can calc the angle between two points (in degrees):

double CalcAngle( CPoint& p1, CPoint& p2 )
{
      if ( p1.x == p2.x )
      {
            if ( p1.y < p2.y )
                  return 90.0;
            else
                  return 270.0;
      }
      else if ( p1.y == p2.y )
      {
            if ( p1.x < p2.x )
                  return 0.0;
            else
                  return 180.0;
      }

      return atan2( p2.y - p1.y, p2.x - p1.x ) * 180.0 / 3.14159265358;
}

// if you need it in radians you can simply calc it from result with
r = d * PI / 180; // d = angle in degrees, r in radians

With this you can easily calc angles from center to start- and endpoint.

hope this helps,
