ItemGroups Property (IBomTableSortData)

Gets and sets the categories into which the BOM table rows are grouped.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property ItemGroups As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBomTableSortData
Dim value As System.Object
instance.ItemGroups = value
value = instance.ItemGroups
System.object ItemGroups {get; set;}
property System.Object^ ItemGroups {
   System.Object^ get();
   void set ( &   System.Object^ value);

Property Value

Array of categories as defined in swBomTableSortItemGroup_e or null (see Remarks)



You can set this property in one of two ways:

  • Specify null to indicate that the BOM table rows are not to be grouped into categories.
  • Specify an array of three swBomTableSortItemGroup_e enumerators to indicate that the BOM table rows are to be grouped into three categories (assemblies, parts, other). 

For example, when you set this property to an array of three enumerators in the following order, assemblies are grouped first, parts are grouped next, and other categories are grouped last:

  1. swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_Assemblies
  2. swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_Parts
  3. swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_Other

Substitute any enumerator in the array with swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_None to eliminate grouping into that category.

For example, when you set this property to the following array, no assemblies are grouped, parts are grouped first, and other categories are grouped last:

  1. swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_None
  2. swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_Parts
  3. swBomTableSortItemGroup_e.swBomTableSortItemGroup_Other
