GetAnnotation Method (ICenterMark)

Gets the annotation for this group of center marks.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetAnnotation() As Annotation
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICenterMark
Dim value As Annotation
value = instance.GetAnnotation()
Annotation GetAnnotation()
Annotation^ GetAnnotation(); 

Return Value

Pointer to the IAnnotation object



This method returns NULL for center marks created as features (previous style of center marks). See ICenterMark for details about the old and new style center marks. See SolidWorks Help for details about center marks.

For example, if ISelectionMgr::GetSelectedObjectType3 equals swSelCENTERMARKS, then ICenterMark::GetAnnotation equals NULL. But, if ISelectionMgr::GetSelectedObjectType3 equals swSelCENTERMARKSYMS, then ICenterMark::GetAnnotation points to the IAnnotation object.
