Hello Guys,

I need a small code in VB.NET which gives me Arc Tangent / Inverse of tangent. For example : ArcTangent(45) should return a value of 88.7270.

I did some search but couldn't come up with a inbuilt .net function or algorithm.

I would be grateful if anyone can help me out here.

Thank you,

Cheers,
Saurabh
