IsFixed Method (IComponent2)

Gets whether the component is fixed or floating.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IsFixed() As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IComponent2
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.IsFixed()
System.bool IsFixed()
System.bool IsFixed(); 

Return Value

True if this component is fixed, false if it is floating



This method only applies to the top level of components. To get the actual state of sub-assemblies, you must get the IModelDoc2 object of the subassembly, show the desired configuration, and get the state (fixed or floating) of the lower components.

To determine if a component is fixed or floating, you must begin the traversal from the subassembly document in the appropriate configuration instead of from the root level. At the root level, all of the components in the subassembly are allowed to move.
