Orientation Property (ISFSymbol)

Gets whether the orientation of this surface finish symbol is relative to the model or entity to which it is attached.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property Orientation As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISFSymbol
Dim value As System.Integer
instance.Orientation = value
value = instance.Orientation
System.int Orientation {get; set;}
property System.int Orientation {
   System.int get();
   void set ( &   System.int value);

Property Value

Orientation as defined in swSurfaceFinishSymbolOrientation_e


If setting the value to swSFOrientation_UserDefined, then the angle at which the symbol is displayed does not change. Instead, use ISFSymbol::SetAngle to set the symbol to a user-specified angle, which automatically sets the orientation to swSFOrientation_UserDefined.


Use ISFSymbol::GetAngle to get the angle of the symbol.
