Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.SetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation(Axis, Value, Config_option, Config_names)
System.bool SetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation( 
   System.int Axis,
   System.object Value,
   System.int Config_option,
   System.object Config_names
System.bool SetOverridePrincipleAxesOrientation( 
&   System.int Axis,
&   System.Object^ Value,
&   System.int Config_option,
&   System.Object^ Config_names



One of the following principal axes:

  • 0 = X axis
  • 1 = Y axis
  • 2 = Z axis
An array of three doubles of the x, y, and z coordinates of Axis
Configuration option as defined in swInConfigurationOpts_e
Array of configuration names; valid only if Config_option = swInConfigurationOpts_e.swSpecifyConfiguration
