Use the Polyline Object dialog box to determine the polyline's location, length, line segments, and smoothness.

Bounds X1, Y1 and X2, Y2

The lower left (X1, Y1) and upper right (X2, Y2) corners of the polyline's minimum bounding rectangle (the smallest rectangle that can fully enclose the polyline).

Center X, Y

The coordinate of the midpoint of the middle segment or the middle node.

When there is an odd number of segments, the middle segment is defined to be segment N/2 + 1, with N equal to the number of segments. So if you had eight segments, MapInfo Pro would report the center of the fifth segment, or 8/2 + 1.

When there is an even number of segments, the middle node is defined to be N/2 + 1, with N equal to the number of segments.

Total Length

Total length of the line segments.

Line Segments

The number of segments is the total number in all sections of the polyline.

Sections

Polylines can have multiple sections.

Smooth

Check it when you want to smooth the polyline, making it into a continuous curve.
