GetFace Method (ISketchHatch)

Gets the face associated with this sketch hatch.

.NET Syntax

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

Return Value

Face associated with the sketch hatch or NULL if the operation fails



This method returns the face in the space of the sketch or drawing view. You should not select the returned face. Only use the returned face for getting the geometry of the sketch hatch: loops, edges, equations for the edges, and so on. Do not hold on to the pointer to the face after it is used as the face is transient.
