   ByVal X As System.Double, _
   ByVal Y As System.Double, _
   ByVal AnchorType As System.Integer, _
   ByVal StartValue As System.String, _
   ByVal TableTemplate As System.String _
) As HoleTableAnnotation
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IView
Dim UseAnchorPoint As System.Boolean
Dim X As System.Double
Dim Y As System.Double
Dim AnchorType As System.Integer
Dim StartValue As System.String
Dim TableTemplate As System.String
Dim value As HoleTableAnnotation
value = instance.InsertHoleTable2(UseAnchorPoint, X, Y, AnchorType, StartValue, TableTemplate)
HoleTableAnnotation InsertHoleTable2( 
   System.bool UseAnchorPoint,
   System.double X,
   System.double Y,
   System.int AnchorType,
   System.string StartValue,
   System.string TableTemplate
HoleTableAnnotation^ InsertHoleTable2( 
&   System.bool UseAnchorPoint,
&   System.double X,
&   System.double Y,
&   System.int AnchorType,
&   System.String^ StartValue,
&   System.String^ TableTemplate



If true, and the sheet format anchor point exists, then insert table at the anchor point; if false, then insert the table at the location specified by the X and Y parameters

X coordinate in meters for the anchor of this hole table

Y coordinate in meters for the anchor of this hole table


Anchor type as defined by swBomConfigurationAnchorType_e

Starting value for datum tags; a letter from A to Z, if TableTemplate uses letter tags; a positive integer, if TableTemplate uses number tags (see Remarks)

Path and filename of the table template that corresponds to the table you want to use (see Remarks)

Return Value

Hole table annotation



This method inserts a table with the following information for selected holes:

  • Datum tag
  • X-location of hole center
  • Y-location of hole center
  • Size

This method displays datum tags next to holes that have been pre-selected in the view. The location of the datum tags is relative to a datum origin that is also pre-selected in the view.

Before calling this method, call IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 to select the datum origin, hole edges, and faces (for multiple holes) as follows:



Datum origin vertex 1
Hole edges and faces


Datum origin x axis direction reference


Datum origin y axis direction reference


Specify TableTemplate using a hole table template (*.sldholtbt) in install_dir\lang\language.

Specify a TableTemplate and StartValue that matches the table you want to create. For example, to insert a hole table with letter tags, specify TableTemplate using install_dir\lang\English\standard hole table--letters.sldholtbt and specify StartValue using a letter from A to Z.
