I just want to make sure that I am understanding the capabilities correctly.

My point falls inside a polygon.  I want to find the distance to the closest intersection between the point and the polygon boundary.

So if i use the polygon as the geometry and I use the esriGeometryHitPartType.esriGeometryPartBoundary Type, will hitTest return the closest boundary intersection to the polygon that the point falls inside of?
