.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function SetRegionParameterAtIndex( _
   ByVal Index As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Parameter As System.Integer, _
   ByVal PitchValue As System.Double _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IHelixFeatureData
Dim Index As System.Integer
Dim Parameter As System.Integer
Dim PitchValue As System.Double
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.SetRegionParameterAtIndex(Index, Parameter, PitchValue)
System.int SetRegionParameterAtIndex( 
   System.int Index,
   System.int Parameter,
   System.double PitchValue

Region parameter value

Return Value

Status of setting region parameters as defined in swSetHelixRegionParameterStatus_e



If the helix is defined as... Then you cannot change...
swHelixDefinedBy_e.swHelixDefinedByHeightAndPitch Revolution value
swHelixDefinedBy_e.swHelixDefinedByHeightAndRevolution Pitch value
swHelixDefinedBy_e.swHelixDefinedByPitchAndRevolution Height value


If setting a value for... Then you...
Revolution Must specify a value greater than the previous region's revolution value and less than the next region's revolution value
Pitch for the first region only Cannot change diameter, height, or revolution
