SetDual2 Method (IDisplayDimension)

Controls the display of dual dimensions of this display dimension.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub SetDual2( _
   ByVal UseDoc As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal InwardRounding As System.Boolean _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDisplayDimension
Dim UseDoc As System.Boolean
Dim InwardRounding As System.Boolean
instance.SetDual2(UseDoc, InwardRounding)
void SetDual2( 
   System.bool UseDoc,
   System.bool InwardRounding
void SetDual2( 
&   System.bool UseDoc,
&   System.bool InwardRounding


True uses the document setting, false uses the opposite of the document setting (see Remarks)
True for inward rounding of secondary unit tolerances, false for current document rounding (see Remarks)



Dual dimensions can use either the same top, bottom, right, or left setting as the document or an opposite top, bottom, right, or left setting. This method allows you to set a dual dimension to use the current document setting or the opposite setting.

If InwardRounding is false and an override unit is... Then...
Not specified Current document rounding prevails
Specified Rounding setting under Override Units in the Dimensions PropertyManager page prevails

Use IDisplayDimension::GetUseDocDual to get the current value of this setting.

After using this method, use IModelDoc2::GraphicsRedraw2 to redraw the graphics window to see your changes.
