GetComponents Method (ISwDMConfiguration2)

Gets the components referenced by the configuration.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetComponents() As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISwDMConfiguration2
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.GetComponents()
System.object GetComponents()
System.Object^ GetComponents(); 

Return Value

Array of ISwDMComponent objects



Do not use this method if a document component or reference is changed by ISwDMDocument::ReplaceReference and the document is not subsequently opened and saved in SolidWorks, because this method could return old and now nonexistent references. Instead, use ISwDMDocument8::GetChangedReferences or ISwDMConfiguration11::GetReplacedComponents until opening and saving the document in SolidWorks. 

This method only returns data for documents created using SolidWorks 2003 (Version 2200) and later. To get the version of a document, use ISwDMDocument::GetVersion.
