GetVirtualEdges Method (IWeldmentBeadFeatureData)

Gets the edges to which the weld bead is applied.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetVirtualEdges( _
   ByVal FromFeature As Boolean, _
   ByVal Side As Integer _
) As Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IWeldmentBeadFeatureData
Dim FromFeature As Boolean
Dim Side As Integer
Dim value As Object
value = instance.GetVirtualEdges(FromFeature, Side)
object GetVirtualEdges( 
   bool FromFeature,
   int Side
Object^ GetVirtualEdges( 
&   bool FromFeature,
&   int Side



True gets the virtual edges used by the feature, false gets all of the virtual edges

Side as defined in swWeldBeadSide_e

Return Value

Array of the edges



Do not perform any operations on the returned edges as they are only temporary to help you decide which edges to keep for this weld bead.


After using IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetFaces, use IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::GetVirtualEdges to get the new intersections. Then use IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetVirtualEdges to specify the edges to which you want the weld bead applied. By default, IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetFaces creates the bead on all virtual edges; IWeldmentBeadFeatureData::SetVirtualEdges lets you exclude any of these edges.
