SolidWorks recommends that you use the IAttribute, IAttributeDef, and IParameter classes instead of this method. These classes are newer and provide more flexibility.

To use this method, you must define the object type (float, string, or integer), assign a value to the variable, and then use this method to place the value on the face. This method is not supported for faces obtained from reference surface bodies.
