The object or objects this method applies to.


Variant (array of doubles); input-only
An array of OCS coordinates used to create the polyline vertices. Each vertex is represented with three elements, with the first two being the X and Y coodinates in OCS; the third element is ignored. At least two points (six elements) are required for constructing a polyline object. The array size must be a multiple of three.


Polyline object
The newly created Polyline object.


To create a polyline containing arcs, first create the straight polyline, and then set the bulge at specific vertices using the SetBulge method.

This method exists for backward compatibility only. Use the AddLightweightPolyline method to create polylines with an optimized format that saves memory and disk space.

Coordinates can be converted to and from the OCS using the TranslateCoordinates method.
