See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.


Use IModelDoc2::GetConfigurationCount to get the number of configurations in this part. Use the return value for Count to dimension the ConfigList array.

This method compares the number of configurations in the actual part with the number passed in. If the actual number of configurations is larger than the number passed in, no configurations are returned, and status returns S_ERROR. If the actual number of configurations is smaller than the number passed in, all of the configurations are returned in the configList, and configCount is changed to reflect the actual number of configurations.
