GetUseDocBrokenLeader Method (IDisplayDimension)

Gets whether this display dimension uses the document default setting for displaying leaders as broken.

.NET Syntax

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

Return Value

True if this display dimension uses the document setting, false if it uses a specific setting


SolidWorks can display dimension text above a solid, unbroken leader line, or the dimension leader line can be broken with the text displayed either horizontal or aligned with the leader line. This method allows you to determine if this IDisplayDimension is using the document default setting for this value or if the user has applied a
specific setting to this specific IDisplayDimension.

Use IDisplayDimension::SetBrokenLeader2 to set this value.
