IGetDisplayDimensions Method (IView)

Gets all of the display dimensions on this drawing view.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetDisplayDimensions( _
   ByVal NumDisplayDim As Integer _
) As DisplayDimension
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IView
Dim NumDisplayDim As Integer
Dim value As DisplayDimension
value = instance.IGetDisplayDimensions(NumDisplayDim)
DisplayDimension IGetDisplayDimensions( 
   int NumDisplayDim
DisplayDimension^ IGetDisplayDimensions( 
&   int NumDisplayDim


Total number of display dimensions on this drawing view

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of display dimensions
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

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


Use this method to obtain the array of display dimensions all at once instead of calling IView::GetFirstDisplayDimension5 and then repeatedly calling IDisplayDimension::GetNext5 to obtain the remaining display dimensions on this drawing view.

Before calling this method, call IView::GetDisplayDimensionCount to get the value for numDisplayDim. 

NOTE: Display dimensions are not the same as actual model dimensions.
