CompareGeometry3 Method (ICompareGeometry)

Identifies the differences in geometry in the solid features and surface models between two versions of the same part and generates a report.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CompareGeometry3( _
   ByVal reffile As System.String, _
   ByVal refconfig As System.String, _
   ByVal modfile As System.String, _
   ByVal modconfig As System.String, _
   ByVal lOperationOptions As System.Integer, _
   ByVal lResultOptions As System.Integer, _
   ByVal reportname As System.String, _
   ByVal vtAddToBinderOption As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal vtOverwrite As System.Boolean, _
   ByRef volDiffStatus As System.Integer, _
   ByRef faceDiffStatus As System.Integer _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICompareGeometry
Dim reffile As System.String
Dim refconfig As System.String
Dim modfile As System.String
Dim modconfig As System.String
Dim lOperationOptions As System.Integer
Dim lResultOptions As System.Integer
Dim reportname As System.String
Dim vtAddToBinderOption As System.Boolean
Dim vtOverwrite As System.Boolean
Dim volDiffStatus As System.Integer
Dim faceDiffStatus As System.Integer
Dim value As System.Integer
 
value = instance.CompareGeometry3(reffile, refconfig, modfile, modconfig, lOperationOptions, lResultOptions, reportname, vtAddToBinderOption, vtOverwrite, volDiffStatus, faceDiffStatus)
C# 
System.int CompareGeometry3( 
   System.string reffile,
   System.string refconfig,
   System.string modfile,
   System.string modconfig,
   System.int lOperationOptions,
   System.int lResultOptions,
   System.string reportname,
   System.bool vtAddToBinderOption,
   System.bool vtOverwrite,
   out System.int volDiffStatus,
   out System.int faceDiffStatus
)
C++/CLI 
System.int CompareGeometry3( 
&   System.String^ reffile,
&   System.String^ refconfig,
&   System.String^ modfile,
&   System.String^ modconfig,
&   System.int lOperationOptions,
&   System.int lResultOptions,
&   System.String^ reportname,
&   System.bool vtAddToBinderOption,
&   System.bool vtOverwrite,
&   [Out] System.int volDiffStatus,
&   [Out] System.int faceDiffStatus
) 

Parameters

reffile
Path and filename of the SOLIDWORKS document containing the referenced part
refconfig
Name of reference part's configuration; if blank, then the active configuration is used
modfile
Path and filename of the SOLIDWORKS document containing the modified part
modconfig
Name of modified part's configuration
lOperationOptions
Compare face, volume, or face and volume options as defined by gtGdfOperationOption_e
lResultOptions
Display the results or save the results to a report as defined by gtResultOptions_e
reportname
Path where to save the results report
vtAddToBinderOption
True to add the results report to the Design Binder, false to not
vtOverwrite
True to overwrite an existing results report of the same name, false to not
volDiffStatus
Error types for volume differences as defined in gtVolDiffStatusOptionType_e
faceDiffStatus
Error types for face differences as defined in gtVolDiffStatusOptionType_e

Return Value

Error as defined by gtError_e

Example

Remarks

The vtAddToBinderOption argument is disabled when comparing:

 

  • Two documents with the same name, but located in different folders, or

  • Two configurations of the same part, or

  • Documents selected from the PDM vault

because the documents are saved as temporary files during the comparison.
