IGetTessTriStripEdges Method (IPartDoc)

Gets the edge ID for each of the edges in the triangles that make up the tessellation for this part.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetTessTriStripEdges() As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IPartDoc
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.IGetTessTriStripEdges()
System.int IGetTessTriStripEdges()
System.int IGetTessTriStripEdges(); 

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of longs containing the list of edge IDs for this part document (see Remarks)
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

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

  • Remarks

    The format of the returned data is:


    DWORD FaceCount



    DWORD StripCount



    DWORD EdgeCount



    ForEach Face



    DWORD StripCount



    DWORD [StripLengths]



    ForEach Strip 

    (where this is an array of edge IDs for each strip from 1 to (VertexPerStrip-1). Element 0 indicates if that a triangle strip exists (value = 1) or a single triangle (value = 0))


    Long [EdgeIds]






    Number of faces on the body



    Total number of strips on the body



    Total number of vertices



    Number of strips on a particular face



    Array containing the number of vertex points on particular face strip



    Array of edge IDs for each vertex on the particular face strip


    For triangle strips, EdgeIds is:

    If the strip has n vertices, then there are 2(n 2) + 1 edge tags. The i-th element of the tags array (starting at i = 1) will be the tag of the edge between vertex floor((i 1) / 2) + 1 and vertex floor(i/2) + 2, where floor(x) is the integer portion of x.

    For single triangles, EdgeIds is:

    The i-th element of the tags array (starting at i = 1) will be the tag of the edge between vertex i-1 (if i=1 then i=n) and vertex i.
