.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function AddPipingFitting( _
   ByVal PathName As System.String, _
   ByVal ConfigName As System.String, _
   ByVal AlignmentIndex As System.Short _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim PathName As System.String
Dim ConfigName As System.String
Dim AlignmentIndex As System.Short
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.AddPipingFitting(PathName, ConfigName, AlignmentIndex)
System.bool AddPipingFitting( 
   System.string PathName,
   System.string ConfigName,
   System.short AlignmentIndex
System.bool AddPipingFitting( 
&   System.String^ PathName,
&   System.String^ ConfigName,
&   System.short AlignmentIndex



Full name and directory location of part file used for this fitting


Configuration within the fitting part file which should be used


Each fitting has a varying number of alignment positions; this value allows you to choose the alignment position

Return Value

True if successful, false otherwise


This method adds a piping fitting to the selected sketch point. The sketch must be the active sketch of the piping assembly.

The alignmentIndex argument controls the alignment of the fitting. For example, you can align a t-piece in two ways: passing 0 aligns the t-piece one way, and passing 1 aligns it the other way.

If the routing DLL is not available, then COM returns ITF_E_ROUTINGNOTLOADED.
