.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function ISetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation( _
   ByVal Axis As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Value As System.Double, _
   ByVal Config_option As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Config_numbers As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Config_names As System.String _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IMassProperty
Dim Axis As System.Integer
Dim Value As System.Double
Dim Config_option As System.Integer
Dim Config_numbers As System.Integer
Dim Config_names As System.String
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.ISetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation(Axis, Value, Config_option, Config_numbers, Config_names)
System.bool ISetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation( 
   System.int Axis,
   ref System.double Value,
   System.int Config_option,
   System.int Config_numbers,
   ref System.string Config_names
System.bool ISetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation( 
&   System.int Axis,
&   System.double% Value,
&   System.int Config_option,
&   System.int Config_numbers,
&   System.String^% Config_names



One of the following principal axes:

  • 0 = X axis
  • 1 = Y axis
  • 2 = Z axis
  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of three doubles of the x, y, and z coordinates of the specified principal Axis
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported 

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

Configuration option as defined in swInConfigurationOpts_e
Number of configurations
  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of configuration names of size Config_numbers; valid only if Config_option = swInConfigurationOpts_e.swSpecifyConfiguration
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported 

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

Return Value

True if orientation of principal axis is overridden, false if not
