SetArrowHeadStyle2 Method (IDisplayDimension)

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function SetArrowHeadStyle2( _
   ByVal UseDoc As Boolean, _
   ByVal Style1 As Integer, _
   ByVal Style2 As Integer _
) As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDisplayDimension
Dim UseDoc As Boolean
Dim Style1 As Integer
Dim Style2 As Integer
Dim value As Boolean
value = instance.SetArrowHeadStyle2(UseDoc, Style1, Style2)
bool SetArrowHeadStyle2( 
   bool UseDoc,
   int Style1,
   int Style2
bool SetArrowHeadStyle2( 
&   bool UseDoc,
&   int Style1,
&   int Style2


True uses the document setting for arrowhead style, false uses the settings specified
in Style1 and Style2
Arrowhead style of first arrowhead as defined in swArrowStyle_e
Arrowhead style of second arrowhead as defined in swArrowStyle_e

Return Value

True if the arrowhead styles are set, false if not


The arrowhead style for a display dimension is controlled by a value stored in one of two places: on the owning document or on the individual display dimension. Use IDisplayDimension::GetUseDocArrowHeadStyle and IDisplayDimension::GetArrowHeadStyle2 to get the current values for these settings.

Setting UseDoc to True indicates that the document default setting for arrowhead style should be used, and Style1 and Style2 will be ignored.

After using this method, use IModelDoc2::GraphicsRedraw2 to redraw the graphics window to see your changes.
