# IRelationalOperator.Disjoint Method

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

[Visual Basic .NET]
**Public Function Disjoint ( _**
**ByVal** *other*** As **IGeometry _
**) As** Boolean

[C#]
**public **bool** Disjoint (**
IGeometry *other*
**);**

#### Description

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

#### Remarks

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.
