Atan2 Function
System.Math
Math.Atan2(y
,x
)
x
(required; Double)The x coordinate of a point
y
(required; Double)The y coordinate of a point
A Double that is the arctangent of the ratio x/y, in radians
Returns the angle in the Cartesian plane formed by the x-axis and a
vector starting from the origin (0,0) and terminating at the point
(x, y). More specifically, the return value
q
satisfies the following:
For (x, y) in quadrant 1, 0 < q < pi/2.
For (x, y) in quadrant 2, pi /2 < q < pi.
For ( x, y) in quadrant 3, -pi < q < -pi /2.
For ( x, y) in quadrant 4, -pi /2 < q < 0.
This is a Shared member, so it can be used without creating any objects.
The Atan2 function does not exist in VB 6.
