public: double DistanceTo( Circle^ circle ) |

#### Parameters

- circle
- Type: ceometric.VectorGeometry..::.Circle

A circle.

#### Return Value

Returns the signed minimum distance from the plane to circle.# Remarks

This distance is

- positive if the closest point on circle lies on the other side of the plane as the origin,
- zero if circle intersects the plane or lies on the plane and
- negative if the closest point on circle lies on the same side of the plane as the origin.
