SunCentralBody Class

The star at the center of our solar system. You should generally obtain an instance of this class from the CentralBodiesFacet instance in the calculation context instead of creating one directly.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyCenterOfMassPoint
Gets or sets a point describing the center of mass of this central body.
(Overrides CentralBodyCenterOfMassPoint.)
Public propertyFixedFrame
Gets or sets the default Fixed frame that corresponds to the surface features of this central body.
(Overrides CentralBodyFixedFrame.)
Public propertyInertialFrame
Gets or sets the default Inertial frame for this central body.
(Overrides CentralBodyInertialFrame.)
Public propertyIsFrozen
Gets a value indicating whether this object is frozen. A frozen object cannot be modified and an ObjectFrozenException will be thrown if an attempt is made to do so.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public propertyIsThreadSafe
Gets a value indicating whether the methods on this instance are safe to call from multiple threads simultaneously.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public propertyJ2000Frame
Gets or sets the J2000 frame centered at the Sun.
Public propertyName
Gets or sets the name of the central body.
(Overrides CentralBodyName.)
Public propertyPrincipalFrame
Gets or sets the default Fixed frame that corresponds to the gravity frame of this central body.
(Overrides CentralBodyPrincipalFrame.)
Public propertyShape
Gets or sets the shape of this central body.
(Overrides CentralBodyShape.)

Methods
  NameDescription
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(CentralBody)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Overrides CentralBodyCheckForSameDefinition(CentralBody).)
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Protected methodCheckForSameDefinition(SunCentralBody)
Checks to determine if another instance has the same definition as this instance and returns if it does. Derived classes MUST override this method and check all new fields introduced by the derived class for definitional equivalence. It is NOT necessary to check base class fields because the base class will already have done that. When overriding this method, you should NOT call the base implementation because it will return for all derived-class instances. Derived classes should check the type of other to preserve the symmetric nature of IsSameDefinition(Object).
Public methodClone
Clones this object using the specified context.
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectClone(CopyContext).)
Protected methodComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode
Computes a hash code based on the current properties of this object. Derived classes MUST override this method and compute a hash code that combines: a unique hash code seed, the base implementation result, and the hash codes of all new fields introduced by the derived class which are used in the CheckForSameDefinition(DefinitionalObject) method.
(Overrides CentralBodyComputeCurrentDefinitionHashCode.)
Public methodEnumerateDependencies
Enumerates the dependencies of this object by calling EnumerateT(T) for each object that this object directly depends upon. Derived classes which contain additional dependencies MUST override this method, call the base implementation, and enumerate dependencies introduced by the derived class.
(Overrides DefinitionalObjectEnumerateDependencies(DependencyEnumerator).)
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodFreeze
Freezes this object. Further attempts to modify it will result in an ObjectFrozenException.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Protected methodFreezeAggregatedObjects
Called by Freeze to also freeze any objects that are considered to be a part of this object. Derived classes which contain additional aggregated objects MUST override this method, call the base implementation, and freeze aggregated objects introduced by the derived class. The objects that need to be frozen in this method are frequently created in this object's constructor and are not settable via properties.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodGetAzimuthElevationRangeEvaluator(VectorDisplacement)
Gets an evaluator to find the azimuth, elevation, and range of a displacement vector as observed from the initial point.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodGetAzimuthElevationRangeEvaluator(Vector, Point)
Gets an evaluator to find the azimuth, elevation, and range of a vector as observed from a given point.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodGetAzimuthElevationRangeEvaluator(VectorDisplacement, EvaluatorGroup)
Gets an evaluator to find the azimuth, elevation, and range of a displacement vector as observed from the initial point, and associates the evaluator with the specified evaluator group.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodGetAzimuthElevationRangeEvaluator(Vector, Point, EvaluatorGroup)
Gets an evaluator to find the azimuth, elevation, and range of a vector as observed from a given point, and associates the evaluator with the specified evaluator group.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodGetDefinitionHashCode
Gets a hash code representing the definition of this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetService
Gets the service object of the specified type.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsSameDefinition
Determines if this object has the same definition as another object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodObserveCartographicPoint(Point)
Gets an evaluator that can be used to find the Cartographic motion of a point relative to this central body.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodObserveCartographicPoint(Point, EvaluatorGroup)
Gets an evaluator that can be used to find the Cartographic motion of a point relative to this central body.
(Inherited from CentralBody.)
Public methodSynchronizeOrigins (Overrides CentralBodySynchronizeOrigins.)
Protected methodThrowIfFrozen
Throws ObjectFrozenException if this object IsFrozen. This method should be called from any method or property that modifies this object.
(Inherited from DefinitionalObject.)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
