Property Value

Drawing view scale

Example

Remarks

IView::ScaleRatio or IView::IScaleRatio and this property contain the same information, but use the value in different ways:

  • IView::ScaleRatio gets or sets the scale as a ratio of two numbers.

  • IView::ScaleDecimal returns the scale as a decimal number.

For example, if View::ScaleRatio returns 3 2 or 3:2, then IView::ScaleDecimal would return 1.5.

Changing this property can cause changes to the graphics of the drawing. After making all the of the view-related changes, call the IModelDoc2::EditRebuild2 method to regenerate the drawing to see these changes.
