.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function SketchPolygon( _
   ByVal XCenter As System.Double, _
   ByVal YCenter As System.Double, _
   ByVal XEdge As System.Double, _
   ByVal YEdge As System.Double, _
   ByVal NSides As System.Integer, _
   ByVal BInscribed As System.Boolean _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDoc2
Dim XCenter As System.Double
Dim YCenter As System.Double
Dim XEdge As System.Double
Dim YEdge As System.Double
Dim NSides As System.Integer
Dim BInscribed As System.Boolean
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.SketchPolygon(XCenter, YCenter, XEdge, YEdge, NSides, BInscribed)
System.bool SketchPolygon( 
   System.double XCenter,
   System.double YCenter,
   System.double XEdge,
   System.double YEdge,
   System.int NSides,
   System.bool BInscribed
System.bool SketchPolygon( 
&   System.double XCenter,
&   System.double YCenter,
&   System.double XEdge,
&   System.double YEdge,
&   System.int NSides,
&   System.bool BInscribed



X component of the polygon's center


Y component of the polygon's center


X component of the first vertex on the polygon


Y component of the first vertex on the polygon


Number of sides for the polygon


True to show an inscribed construction circle, false to show a circumscribed construction circle

Return Value

True if polygon created, false if not
