IsDimXpert Method (IAnnotation)

Gets whether the annotation is a DimXpert annotation.

.NET Syntax

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

Return Value

True if the annotation is a DimXpert annotation, false if not



Use this method to determine if the annotation is a DimXpert display dimension. If it is, then use  IAnnotation::GetDimXpertFeature to access the DimXpert feature, which provides access to the display dimension information.

DimXpert annotations such as datums and GTols can be hidden, shown, or hidden as a group, which can be important when exporting to a DXF/DWG file.
