GetLeaderAllAround Method (IAnnotation)

Gets the setting for all-around symbol display of this annotation.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetLeaderAllAround() As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAnnotation
Dim value As Boolean
value = instance.GetLeaderAllAround()
bool GetLeaderAllAround()
bool GetLeaderAllAround(); 

Return Value

True if this annotation has the all-around symbol enabled, false if this annotation has the all-around symbol disabled


The all-around display flag is a characteristic of the annotation, not of individual leaders. You can get or set it whether or not leaders are displayed.

If bent leaders are disabled for this annotation, you can still get or set the all-around display flag. However, SolidWorks does not use it to display the annotation.

The all-around symbol applies only to geometric tolerances and weld symbols. For all other types of annotations, this method returns false.

IAnnotation::GetLeaderStyle Get leader characteristics
