GetTrimCurveTopology Method (IFace2)

Gets the trim curve topology for this face.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetTrimCurveTopology() As Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFace2
Dim value As Object
value = instance.GetTrimCurveTopology()
object GetTrimCurveTopology()
Object^ GetTrimCurveTopology(); 

Return Value

Array of coedges, vertices, and NULLs (see Remarks)


This method returns a list of coedges, vertices, and NULLs. You must call IFace2::GetTrimCurves2 or IFace2::IGetTrimCurves2 before calling this method.

This method returns a list of proper edges corresponding to the list of SP curves from IFace2::GetTrimCurves2 or IFace2::IGetTrimCurves2. Otherwise, this method prompts the user for the list of edges that the software thinks are on the face. These two lists differ in order and content.

Use IFace2::GetTrimCurveTopologyTypes or IFace2::IGetTrimCurveTopologyTypes to get an array of types corresponding to the returned objects.
