## ClosestPointOn

**Syntax**

ClosestPointOn(MapWinGeoProc.Topology2D.Polygon Poly)

**Summary**

In the 2D case, we can treat the edges of the extents as segments and use the segment distance equations to find the closest distance.

**Parameters**

Poly |
The Polygon to inspect and return the point that is closest to this polygons centroid. If there are equal distances, this will keep the first segment it finds. |

**Returns**

a Point representing the closest point found on the boundaries.
