C++/CLI 
void EditMate2( 
&   int MateTypeFromEnum,
&   int AlignFromEnum,
&   bool Flip,
&   double Distance,
&   double DistanceAbsUpperLimit,
&   double DistanceAbsLowerLimit,
&   double GearRatioNumerator,
&   double GearRatioDenominator,
&   double Angle,
&   double AngleAbsUpperLimit,
&   double AngleAbsLowerLimit,
&   [Out] int ErrorStatus
) 

Parameters

MateTypeFromEnum
Type of mate as defined in swMateType_e
AlignFromEnum
Type of alignment desired as defined in swMateAlign_e
Flip
True to flip the component, false to not
Distance
Distance value to use with distance or limit mates
DistanceAbsUpperLimit
Absolute maximum distance allowed
DistanceAbsLowerLimit
Absolutie minimum distance allowed
GearRatioNumerator
Gear ratio numerator value for gear mates
GearRatioDenominator
Gear ratio denominator value for gear mates
Angle
Angle value to use with angle mates
AngleAbsUpperLimit
Absolute maximum angle allowed
AngleAbsLowerLimit
Absolute minimum angle allowed
ErrorStatus
Success or error as defined by swAddMateError_e

Remarks

The first selection should be the two items that are mated (that is, two faces, edge and face, and so on), and the third selection should be the mate feature to be edited. The mate feature must be selected last. The two mated items must be selected with a selection mark of 1. See ISelectData or IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 for details on using selection marks.

If mateType is swMateDISTANCE or swMateANGLE when the mate is applied to the closest position that meets the mate condition specified by distance or angle, then setting flip to True moves the assembly to the other possible mate position.


This method does not support editing Inplace mates.
