Translation in Y direction, in meters and relative to Windows X,Y axes of the graphics area



This method lets you specify a vector by which to translate the current SolidWorks graphics area. This vector is in meters and is relative to the X,Y axes of the graphics area. This vector has no relation to the SolidWorks triad axis that is displayed in the graphics area. This method is equivalent to the user-interface panning of the graphics area.
