Return Value




This method retrieves all display dimensions, including suppressed, hidden, and dangling dimensions, on the sheet and on the sheet format if it is visible. See ISheet::SheetFormatVisible for details.


A dimension is suppressed or hidden when you:

    • specifically select a dimension and hide it.

      - or -

    • select a feature and hide all dimensions.

If you need to filter out these dimensions, use IAnnotation::Visible to check that status.


The annotation is returned even if it is on a layer that is not displayed.


To get the first annotation on the sheet, call IView::GetFirstAnnotation3 before calling this method.
