Return Value

Value as defined in swSetSectionLabelStatus_e



If the return status...

Then the operation...

< 0


= 0


> 0

Succeeded. However:

  • If you attempt to set the section label to the same value as an existing section label and the drawing standard does allow duplicate section labels, then status = 1. That is, the label is changed, but the status indicates that the label is a duplicate, which is not allowed by the drawing standard.

  • If the dimensioning standard allows duplicate section labels, then status = 0.
