   ByVal EdgeName As System.String _

Visual Basic (Usage)

&   System.String^ EdgeName



Name of the edge

Return Value

True if edge properties successfully changed, false if not


If the edge...

Then this method...

Does not have a name

Sets the name.

Has a name

Does not change the name and returns false.

This behavior is intended to prevent a program from renaming an edge that is referenced in some other location.

For example, if an assembly contains a mate to an edge on a part, then a name is automatically assigned to that edge. If you change that name, then there is no guarantee that the mate remains valid. Therefore, when using entity names, you should first check to see if the entity is already named, and if so, use the existing name. If no name exists for the edge, then you can give the edge a name.
