SetSymbol Method (ISFSymbol)

Sets the type of symbol for this surface finish symbol.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function SetSymbol( _
   ByVal Symbol As System.Integer, _
   ByVal SurfaceTexture As System.Integer, _
   ByVal AllAround As System.Boolean _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISFSymbol
Dim Symbol As System.Integer
Dim SurfaceTexture As System.Integer
Dim AllAround As System.Boolean
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.SetSymbol(Symbol, SurfaceTexture, AllAround)
System.bool SetSymbol( 
   System.int Symbol,
   System.int SurfaceTexture,
   System.bool AllAround
System.bool SetSymbol( 
&   System.int Symbol,
&   System.int SurfaceTexture,
&   System.bool AllAround


Type of symbol as defined in swSFSymType_e
Symbol surface text type as defined in swSFSymType_e
True if symbol is All Around, false if symbol is Local

Return Value

True if symbol is set, false if it is not


The Symbol argument must be one of the following values from the swSFSymType_e enumeration: swSFBasic, swSFMachining_Req, swSFDont_Machine, swSFJIS_No_Machining, swSFJIS_Basic, or swSFJIS_Machining_Req.

ISFSymbol::GetSymbol will get this value.


If the symbol is...

Then use...

swSFJIS_No_Machining or swSFJIS_Basic

the SurfaceTexture argument must be one of these values from the swSFSymType enumeration:
swSFJIS_Surface_Texture_1, swSFJIS_Surface_Texture_2, swSFJIS_Surface_Texture_3,
or swSFJIS_Surface_Texture_4.

For any other symbol types, this argument is ignored, and 0 should be passed in. The ISFSymbol::GetSymbolSurfaceTexture method will get this value.

swSFBasic, swSFMachining_Req, or swSFDont_Machine

the AllAround argument indicates whether this is an All Around or Local symbol.
Use ISFSymbol::GetSymbolAllAround to get this value.
