Paint.MiterLimit (gb.qt4)

Static Property MiterLimit As Float

Returns or sets the current miter limit.

If the current line join style is set to LineJoinMiter (see LineJoin), the miter limit is used to determine whether the lines should be joined with a bevel instead of a miter. The length of the miter is divided by the line width. If the result is greater than the miter limit, the style is converted to a bevel.

As with the other stroke parameters, the current line miter limit is examined by Paint.Stroke, but does not have any effect during path construction.

The default miter limit value is 10.0, which will convert joins with interior angles less than 11 degrees to bevels instead of miters. For reference, a miter limit of 2.0 makes the miter cutoff at 60 degrees, and a miter limit of 1.414 makes the cutoff at 90 degrees.

A miter limit for a desired angle can be computed as:

MiterLimit = 1 / Sin(Angle / 2)
