.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub GetScaleParametersForActiveDocument( _
   ByRef minimumScale As Integer, _
   ByRef maximumScale As Integer, _
   ByRef scaleIncrement As Integer _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISw3DPrinter
Dim minimumScale As Integer
Dim maximumScale As Integer
Dim scaleIncrement As Integer
instance.GetScaleParametersForActiveDocument(minimumScale, maximumScale, scaleIncrement)
void GetScaleParametersForActiveDocument( 
   out int minimumScale,
   out int maximumScale,
   out int scaleIncrement
void GetScaleParametersForActiveDocument( 
&   [Out] int minimumScale,
&   [Out] int maximumScale,
&   [Out] int scaleIncrement


Minimum scale value

Maximum scale value


Value by which to increment scale values


These values appear in the Scale box.

This method is called when the user selects the vendor's printer.

When the user selects a printer from the list, that printer’s driver populates the Print dialog with default values. One of values is the scale parameters. For example, a printer might be able to scale between 10 and 300 in 5% increments. The printer's driver implements this method to return the minimum, maximum, and increment values, and SolidWorks calls this method to return these values for that printer's driver.
