.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IDraftBody2( _
   ByVal NumOfFaces As System.Integer, _
   ByRef FaceList As Face2, _
   ByRef EdgeList As Edge, _
   ByVal BasePoint As MathPoint, _
   ByVal DraftAngle As System.Double, _
   ByRef Dir As System.Double _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim NumOfFaces As System.Integer
Dim FaceList As Face2
Dim EdgeList As Edge
Dim BasePoint As MathPoint
Dim DraftAngle As System.Double
Dim Dir As System.Double
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.IDraftBody2(NumOfFaces, FaceList, EdgeList, BasePoint, DraftAngle, Dir)
System.bool IDraftBody2( 
   System.int NumOfFaces,
   ref Face2 FaceList,
   ref Edge EdgeList,
   MathPoint BasePoint,
   System.double DraftAngle,
   ref System.double Dir
System.bool IDraftBody2( 
&   System.int NumOfFaces,
&   Face2^% FaceList,
&   Edge^% EdgeList,
&   MathPoint^ BasePoint,
&   System.double DraftAngle,
&   System.double% Dir


Number of faces to draft
Array of faces to draft
Array of edges, one for each face, along which to apply the drafts
Pointer to a MathPoint object (x,y,z values of the base point)
Draft angle
Array of 3 doubles (x, y, z), a vector which specifies the direction
of the draft

Return Value

True if drafts are applied, false if not
