IGetSubFeatures Method (IDimXpertCompoundHoleFeature)

Gets all of the sub-features of this DimXpert compound hole.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetSubFeatures( _
   ByVal Count As Integer _
) As DimXpertFeature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDimXpertCompoundHoleFeature
Dim Count As Integer
Dim value As DimXpertFeature
value = instance.IGetSubFeatures(Count)
DimXpertFeature IGetSubFeatures( 
   int Count
DimXpertFeature^ IGetSubFeatures( 
&   int Count


Number of sub-features of this DimXpert hole feature

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of IDimXpertFeatures
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported
  • Remarks

    This method returns all sub-features of the hole feature. All of the sub-features returned by this method do not appear on the DimXpertManager tab of the Management Panel. Functional geometry sub-features such as planes and cylinders that represent each individual face of a part are for internal use only. These sub-features do not appear in the DimXpertManager tree. However, manufacturing sub-features that are significant for downstream machining and inspection do appear in the DimXpertManager tree. 

    For example, the sub-features of a simple hole are related to functional geometry and are not listed in the DimXpertManager tree. However, the sub-features of a hole pattern are manufacturing features (e.g., simple holes) that are significant for downstream processes. These manufacturing features are listed in the DimXpertManager tree.

    See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.

    Before calling this method, call IDimXpertCompoundHoleFeature::GetSubFeatureCount to get the value for the Count parameter.
