I can easily produce rectangles with rounder corners using RoundingRadius. However, I am unable to do for an open curve

Graphics[Line[{{1, 0}, {2, 1}, {3, 0}, {4, 1}}]]

Any help will be appreciated.

EDIT: I want to generate the underlined part of the following rectangle:

Graphics[{EdgeForm[{Thickness[0.01], Black, Dashed}], 
Rectangle[{0., 0.}, {1, 1}, RoundingRadius -> .2]}, 
AspectRatio -> 1, ImageSize -> 200]

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ @kglr BezierCurve curves too much. I have edited the question showing what I want. $\endgroup$ Commented May 3, 2020 at 4:28

    $\begingroup$ You could place a white arc of a disk over the rounded rectangle to obscure the parts you don't want to see - but would that satisfy your requirements ? $\endgroup$ Commented May 3, 2020 at 11:40

    $\begingroup$ You write that you want to show only part of a rectangle, but it looks as if you want to show only part of the boundary of a rectangle. In another context I might call that a line, one with a few straight segments and a few circular arcs ... which is the conclusion you've already come to. But I think we've also come to the conclusion that Mathematica does not have an intrinsic graphic routine for that and you'll have to write your own. $\endgroup$ Commented May 5, 2020 at 7:29
