SolidWorks recommends that you use the IAttribute, IAttributeDef, or IParameter objects instead of this methods. These classes are newer and provide more flexibility.

To use this method you must first define the object type (float, string, or integer), give your variable a value, and then call this method to place the value on the feature for future reference.
