##### Last updated July 17, 2001

Version: 1 | Requires: CF5 | Library: MathLib

Description:
Calculates the distance between two sets of coordinates on the Cartesian coordinate system

Return Values:
Returns a simple value

Example:

``````<CFSET x1=1>
<CFSET y1=5>
<CFSET x2=1>
<CFSET y2=-5>
<CFOUTPUT>
Given:
<UL>
<LI>x1,y1 = (1,5)
<LI>x2,y2 = (1,-5)
</UL>
The distance between (#x1#,#y1#) and (#x2#,#y2#) = #CoDistance(x1,y1,x2,y2)#
</CFOUTPUT>
``````

Parameters:

Name Description Required
x1 x position of the first point Yes
y1 y position of the first point Yes
x2 x position of the second point Yes
y2 y position of the second point Yes
