IGetProjectionLines Method (IView)

Gets the projection lines (arrows) in this drawing view.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetProjectionLines( _
   ByVal Count As System.Integer _
) As ProjectionArrow
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IView
Dim Count As System.Integer
Dim value As ProjectionArrow
value = instance.IGetProjectionLines(Count)
ProjectionArrow IGetProjectionLines( 
   System.int Count
ProjectionArrow^ IGetProjectionLines( 
&   System.int Count


Number of projection lines

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of projection lines
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.


This method only works for base drawing views; it does not work for projected or auxiliary views.


Multiple projection lines can exist in a view. This method returns the interface for each projection line so that an application such as DXF/DWG translation can create the projection lines with the base drawing view rather than creating those lines when cycling through the views and finding a projected or auxiliary view.


Before calling this method, call IView::GetProjectionLineCount to get the value for Count.
