Inserts a feature that applies a scaling factor to the model.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertScale( _
   ByVal Type As System.Short, _
   ByVal Uniform As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal Xscale As System.Double, _
   ByVal YScale As System.Double, _
   ByVal ZScale As System.Double _
) As Feature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim Type As System.Short
Dim Uniform As System.Boolean
Dim Xscale As System.Double
Dim YScale As System.Double
Dim ZScale As System.Double
Dim value As Feature
value = instance.InsertScale(Type, Uniform, Xscale, YScale, ZScale)
Feature InsertScale( 
   System.short Type,
   System.bool Uniform,
   System.double Xscale,
   System.double YScale,
   System.double ZScale
Feature^ InsertScale( 
&   System.short Type,
&   System.bool Uniform,
&   System.double Xscale,
&   System.double YScale,
&   System.double ZScale



Value as defined in swScaleType_e


True if scaling should be uniform, false if not


X direction of the scale factor


Y direction of the scale factor


Z direction of the scale factor

Return Value

Pointer to the IFeature object



If Uniform is...



XScale is used as the uniform scaling factor.


All three scaling factors (XScale, YScale, and ZScale) are used as the uniform scaling factor.

Use IFeature::GetDefinition and IFeature::IGetDefinition and IFeature::ModifyDefinition and IFeature::IModifyDefinition2 to gain access to the IScaleFeatureData object.
