GetContourEdges Method (ISketch)

Gets the edges for a sketch that has one contour.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetContourEdges( _
   ByVal Xform As System.Object _
) As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISketch
Dim Xform As System.Object
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.GetContourEdges(Xform)
System.object GetContourEdges( 
   System.object Xform
System.Object^ GetContourEdges( 
&   System.Object^ Xform


Array of size 16 doubles representing the transform

Return Value

Array of edges


This method supports sketches with one contour only. For sketches with multiple contours, use ISketch::GetSketchContours or ISketch::IGetSketchContours and then ISketchContour::GetEdges or ISketchContour::IGetEdges.


Specifying the unit transform returns the edges in the space of the sketch.


If your application is expecting the returned edges to be in the context of the model's coordinate system, then xform should be the inverse of the transform returned by ISketch::ModelToSketchTransform.
