InsertSubFolder Method (IFeatureManager)

Creates a subfolder in the Solid Bodies folder in the FeatureManager design tree and moves the selected solid bodies or subfolders in the Solid Bodies folder to the new subfolder.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertSubFolder() As Feature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim value As Feature
value = instance.InsertSubFolder()
Feature InsertSubFolder()
Feature^ InsertSubFolder(); 

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object, the new subfolder


This method requires that the features (solid bodies or subfolders or both) be selected interactively or programmatically. To select the features programmatically, you can use IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 and pass the feature names and the appropriate object types and the selection coordinates 0,0,0. To determine the feature names and object types, use the IFeature::Name and IFeature::GetTypeName methods, respectively.
