IGetID Method (ISketchHatch)

Gets the sketch hatch ID of this sketch hatch.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetID() As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISketchHatch
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.IGetID()
System.int IGetID()
System.int IGetID(); 

Return Value

Array with two longs or integers (see Long vs. Integer) identifying this sketch hatch ID (see Remarks)


The ID of the sketch hatch:

  • is an ordered pair (i1, i2). The combination of these two numbers is always unique within a specific sketch.
  • cannot be assigned by applications or users.
  • is not the same as a persistent reference ID.

Each entity within a specific sketch has a unique ID. However, a sketch line can have the same ID values as a sketch arc within the same sketch. Likewise, in a second sketch, you may find a different sketch element with the same ID. Therefore, your application must keep track of:

  • sketch element type (that is, point, line, arc, spline, and so on)

  • owning sketch name

  • sketch element ID to uniquely identify a sketched item

You can determine the sketch element type by using ISketchSegment::GetType.
