Return Value

True if the dimension is a chamfer dimension, false if not



Unlike most other types of dimensions, the values returned for a chamfer dimension are not necessarily the values seen by the user in the displayed dimension text. The display dimension interprets these values and considers the type of chamfer display requested by the user and then creates an appropriate output string.
