CreatePlaneAtOffset3 Method (IModelDoc2)

Obsolete. Superseded by IFeatureManager::InsertRefPlane.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreatePlaneAtOffset3( _
   ByVal Val As Double, _
   ByVal FlipDir As Boolean, _
   ByVal AutoSize As Boolean _
) As Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDoc2
Dim Val As Double
Dim FlipDir As Boolean
Dim AutoSize As Boolean
Dim value As Object
 
value = instance.CreatePlaneAtOffset3(Val, FlipDir, AutoSize)
C# 
object CreatePlaneAtOffset3( 
   double Val,
   bool FlipDir,
   bool AutoSize
)
C++/CLI 
Object^ CreatePlaneAtOffset3( 
&   double Val,
&   bool FlipDir,
&   bool AutoSize
) 

Parameters

Val

Offset distance from selected plane in meters

FlipDir

True to flip the plane the other way for first direction, false to not

AutoSize

True to automatically size the the plane, false to not

Return Value

Newly created reference plane

Remarks

This method uses the current document setting for displaying the reference plane. If display of reference planes is disabled, then you do not see the reference plane on the screen. If display of reference planes is enabled, then you see it. IModelDocExtension::GetUserPreferenceToggle swDisplayPlanes and IModelDocExtension::SetUserPreferenceToggle swDisplayPlanes get or set this display preference.

 

This method does not select the reference plane after it is created. Objects that are selected before running this method are still selected when the method completes, not the newly created reference plane.

 

This method returns an IRefPlane object. This object can then be used for subsequent operations on the reference plane feature. Having a IRefPlane object may not be useful, except that it is a feature, which is an entity, so methods available on those objects are available. For an OLE user, those functions are directly accessible; for a COM user, those functions are available via QueryInterface. For example, to select the reference plane, use IEntity::Select4.
