Equation Property (IEquationMgr)

Gets or sets the equation at the specified index.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property Equation( _
   ByVal Index As System.Integer _
) As System.String
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IEquationMgr
Dim Index As System.Integer
Dim value As System.String
 
instance.Equation(Index) = value
 
value = instance.Equation(Index)
C# 
System.string Equation( 
   System.int Index
) {get; set;}
C++/CLI 
property System.String^ Equation {
   System.String^ get(System.int Index);
   void set (System.int Index, System.String^ value);
}

Parameters

Index
Index of the equation

Property Value

String containing the equation

Example

Remarks

The string set by this property must be formatted as if entered in the SolidWorks user interface, that is, you must embed the names of the dimensions and global variables in double double quotes. To use the examples below to specify Equation, you would need to replace every double quote with double double quotes, and bracket the entire equation with double quotes.

 

      Global variable assignment:

 

"B" = 2

     

      Component equation:

 

"N_SPOKES@CirPattern1" = "BARLENGTH@Sketch2" /10

 

      Dimension equation that uses the Visual Basic IIf function:

"D1@Extrude2" = (("D1@Extrude3">20, 15, 6))+5

      Dimension equation that sets a dimension to the current value (to set for all configurations, set WhichConfigurations to swInConfigurationOpts_e.swAllConfiguration):

 "D1@Extrude2" =

      Dimension equation that modifies the right-hand side of an already existing dimension equation:

 "D1@Extrude2" = 0.05
