IRelationalOperator.Disjoint Method

Indicates if the two geometries share no points in common. Negate this result to compute the Intersect relation.

    ByVal other As IGeometry _
) As Boolean
public bool Disjoint (
    IGeometry other


Two geometries are disjoint if their intersection is empty.  Two geometries intersect if disjoint is "false".  Disjoint is a Clementini operator.


Only geometries that support the IRelationalOperator interface can be used as input geometries.

Two geometries are disjoint if either one is empty.

Disjoint example. Only "true" relationships are showed in this picture.
