.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetFirstFaceArray( _
   ByRef FromFrontFaceListDisp As Face2, _
   ByRef SizeOfFrontFaceList As System.Integer, _
   ByRef FromFaceBackListDisp As Face2, _
   ByRef SizeOfBackFaceList As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Thickness As System.Double _
) As Face2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IMidSurface3
Dim FromFrontFaceListDisp As Face2
Dim SizeOfFrontFaceList As System.Integer
Dim FromFaceBackListDisp As Face2
Dim SizeOfBackFaceList As System.Integer
Dim Thickness As System.Double
Dim value As Face2
 
value = instance.IGetFirstFaceArray(FromFrontFaceListDisp, SizeOfFrontFaceList, FromFaceBackListDisp, SizeOfBackFaceList, Thickness)
C# 
Face2 IGetFirstFaceArray( 
   out Face2 FromFrontFaceListDisp,
   out System.int SizeOfFrontFaceList,
   out Face2 FromFaceBackListDisp,
   out System.int SizeOfBackFaceList,
   out System.double Thickness
)
C++/CLI 
Face2^ IGetFirstFaceArray( 
&   [Out] Face2^ FromFrontFaceListDisp,
&   [Out] System.int SizeOfFrontFaceList,
&   [Out] Face2^ FromFaceBackListDisp,
&   [Out] System.int SizeOfBackFaceList,
&   [Out] System.double Thickness
) 

Parameters

FromFrontFaceListDisp
  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of front faces
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

    See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.

  • SizeOfFrontFaceList
    Number of front faces
    FromFaceBackListDisp
    • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of back faces
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

    See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.

  • SizeOfBackFaceList
    Number of back faces
    Thickness
    Thickness between the faces

    Return Value

    First face

    Remarks

    A separator is needed between the front faces and back faces. Thus, a NULL always exists between the front faces and the back faces.

     

    For example, if there are five faces in the model, then the mid-surface has five faces. To get the five faces:

    At each call, the data is arranged as follows if there is one front face in the array:  

    [Neutral face], [front face], NULL, [back face]
     

    If there are more than one front face in the array, then the data is arranged as follows:

    [Neutral face], [front face1, front face2], NULL, [back face1, back face2]

    To get the next face from the original paired faces, call IMidSurface3::IGetNextFaceArray.
