GetUseDocSecondArrow Method (IDisplayDimension)

Gets whether this diameter display dimension uses the document default setting for the display of the second outside arrow.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetUseDocSecondArrow() As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDisplayDimension
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.GetUseDocSecondArrow()
System.bool GetUseDocSecondArrow()
System.bool GetUseDocSecondArrow(); 

Return Value

True if this display dimension uses the document setting, false if it uses the local setting


For diameter dimensions, the second outside arrow is the arrow that appears on the opposite side of the arc from the dimension text. This occurs only when the text is outside of the arc.

This method determines whether this display dimension uses the default document setting for second arrow display.

This method applies only to diameter dimensions. If you execute this method for any other types of dimensions, SOLIDWORKS returns false.

Use IDisplayDimension::SetSecondArrow to set this value.
