GetBrokenLeader2 Method (IDisplayDimension)

Gets whether this display dimension has a broken or split leader.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetBrokenLeader2() As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDisplayDimension
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.GetBrokenLeader2()
System.int GetBrokenLeader2()
System.int GetBrokenLeader2(); 

Return Value

Broken leader value as defined in swDisplayDimensionLeaderText_e


Dimension text can be displayed above a solid leader line or the dimension leader line can be broken with the text displayed either horizontal or aligned with the leader line. You can use this method to determine which setting is used by this display dimension.

The setting can be local to the display dimension, or the display dimension might use the default document setting. This method returns a valid value only if it is using a local setting; if this display dimension uses the default document setting, it returns -1.

Use IDisplayDimension::SetBrokenLeader2 to set this value.
