CreateBoundedSurface Method (IBody2)

Creates a bounded surface from an independent base surface.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CreateBoundedSurface( _
   ByVal UOpt As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal VOpt As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal UvParams As System.Object _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim UOpt As System.Boolean
Dim VOpt As System.Boolean
Dim UvParams As System.Object
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.CreateBoundedSurface(UOpt, VOpt, UvParams)
System.bool CreateBoundedSurface( 
   System.bool UOpt,
   System.bool VOpt,
   System.object UvParams
System.bool CreateBoundedSurface( 
&   System.bool UOpt,
&   System.bool VOpt,
&   System.Object^ UvParams



True if U parameter range is given in uvData, false for the entire U parameter range


True if V parameter range is given in uvData, false for the entire V parameter range


Array of 4 doubles (see Remarks)

Return Value

True if bounded surface creation was successful, false if not


Before you use this method, you must call one of the base surface creation methods, such as IBody2::CreateBsplineSurface.

The UOpt and VOpt arguments allow the application to supply parameter range information so that a bounded surface can be made up from part of the base surface. If UOpt and VOpt are both set to false, then SOLIDWORKS uses the entire parameter ranges. This method fails for surfaces with infinite parameter ranges.

UvParams contains 4 doubles describing the UV parameter ranges.

U parameter range

uvData[0] and uvData[1]; UvData[0] must be less than uvData[1]

V parameter range 

uvData[2] and uvData[3]; UvData[2] must be less than uvData[3]

To construct a solid body from bounded surfaces, call IPartDoc::CreateNewBody first, which arranges for a placeholder for this bounded surface.
