Return Value

Precision setting as defined in swDimensionPrecisionSettings_e



If the return value equals swPrecisionFollowsDocumentSetting, then the precision being used is the document default for dual dimension values. You can retrieve the value using IModelDocExtension::GetUserPreferenceInteger with swDetailingAltLinearTolPrecision.

If the return value equals swTolerancePrecisionFollowsNominal, then the precision being used is the same as the precision being used for the dual dimension value. You can retrieve the value using  IDisplayDimension::GetAlternatePrecision2.

Otherwise, the return value is the precision in the dimensions dual units.
