GetTotalColumnCount Method (IDesignTable)

Gets the number of columns in the design table.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetTotalColumnCount() As Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDesignTable
Dim value As Integer
value = instance.GetTotalColumnCount()
int GetTotalColumnCount()
int GetTotalColumnCount(); 

Return Value

Number of columns in the design table



The column index ranges from 1 to the return value.

Before you use any of the IDesignTable methods, use IDesignTable::Attach to activate the IDesignTable. After you finish getting IDesignTable data, use IDesignTable::Detach to deactivate the table.

This method differs from IDesignTable::GetColumnCount in that it counts all the columns in the design table. IDesignTable::GetColumnCount counts only the columns that are currently visible in the IModelView.

To get information outside of the visible region of the design table, get the Microsoft Excel worksheet activated by IDesignTable::Attach. Then, you can use the Microsoft Excel API to make additional queries.
