GetArrowHeadSizeAtIndex Method (IAnnotation)

Gets the arrow head size of the specified leader on this annotation.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetArrowHeadSizeAtIndex( _
   ByVal Index As Integer, _
   ByRef UseDoc As Boolean, _
   ByRef Length As Double, _
   ByRef Width As Double, _
   ByRef Height As Double _
) As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAnnotation
Dim Index As Integer
Dim UseDoc As Boolean
Dim Length As Double
Dim Width As Double
Dim Height As Double
Dim value As Boolean
value = instance.GetArrowHeadSizeAtIndex(Index, UseDoc, Length, Width, Height)
bool GetArrowHeadSizeAtIndex( 
   int Index,
   out bool UseDoc,
   out double Length,
   out double Width,
   out double Height
bool GetArrowHeadSizeAtIndex( 
&   int Index,
&   [Out] bool UseDoc,
&   [Out] double Length,
&   [Out] double Width,
&   [Out] double Height


Index of leader on this annotation
TRUE indicates that the document default setting for arrow head size was used, FALSE
indicates that the Length, Width, and Height values were specified
Length of arrow head
Width of arrow head
Height of arrow head

Return Value

True if the method succeeds, false if not


The index value is 0-based. Therefore, a valid index value is greater than or equal to 0, but less than the number of leaders on this annotation. Use IAnnotation::GetArrowHeadCount to find the number of leaders on this annotation. If the index value is invalid, SolidWorks returns the arrowhead style as -1, and returns an S_FALSE status (COM interface).


Use IAnnotation::SetArrowHeadSizeAtIndex to set the arrow head size of a specific leader.
