Visible Length vs. Perimeter

Recommended Posts

I can't seems to figure out the difference between these 2 Ruby object attributes...

 

visible_length and perimter

 

Do any of you happen to know what the difference is...if there even IS a difference?

Michael,

 

What kind of object do they refer to?

I posed this question a way long time ago and I never found an answer...until just now.  Visible length is exactly as it sounds.  Its the visible length of the polyline.  If "No Molding On Selected Edge" is checked (molding suppressed), then that segment is excluded from the perimeter/length.  Super handy for various automated analysis operations.
