IGetRelatedTangentEdges Method (IView)

Gets the visible tangent edges for the specified bendline in a flat-pattern drawing view.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetRelatedTangentEdges( _
   ByVal BendLine As SketchSegment, _
   ByVal NumOfTangentEdges As System.Integer _
) As Edge
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IView
Dim BendLine As SketchSegment
Dim NumOfTangentEdges As System.Integer
Dim value As Edge
value = instance.IGetRelatedTangentEdges(BendLine, NumOfTangentEdges)
Edge IGetRelatedTangentEdges( 
   SketchSegment BendLine,
   System.int NumOfTangentEdges
Edge^ IGetRelatedTangentEdges( 
&   SketchSegment^ BendLine,
&   System.int NumOfTangentEdges


Bendline whose visible tangent edges you want (see Remarks)
Number of visible tangent edges for the specified bendline

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of visible tangent edges for the specified bendline
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

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


Before calling this method, call IView::GetRelatedTangentEdgeCount to get NumOfTangentEdges.

Hidden tangent edges are not returned by this method. Call IDrawingDoc::ViewTangentEdges to change the visibility of tangent edges in a drawing.

Call IView::GetBendLineCount to get the number of bendlines in a flat-pattern drawing view. Call IView::GetBendLines or IView::IGetBendLines to get an array of bendlines for a flat-pattern drawing view. Use the value returned by IView::GetBendLineCount to determine the index of the bendline in the array of bendlines you want.
