SetTangentInfluence Method (IBoundaryBossFeatureData)

Sets the curve influence toward the next curve for the specified curve in the specified direction in this boundary feature.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub SetTangentInfluence( _
   ByVal Direction As System.Integer, _
   ByVal GuideIndex As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Influence As System.Double _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBoundaryBossFeatureData
Dim Direction As System.Integer
Dim GuideIndex As System.Integer
Dim Influence As System.Double
instance.SetTangentInfluence(Direction, GuideIndex, Influence)
void SetTangentInfluence( 
   System.int Direction,
   System.int GuideIndex,
   System.double Influence
void SetTangentInfluence( 
&   System.int Direction,
&   System.int GuideIndex,
&   System.double Influence


Direction as defined in swBoundaryBossDirection_e
Index of the curve (see Remarks)

Percentage of curve influence; 0.0 <= value for curve influence <= 1.0 


This method is only available if curves in both directions exist and the type of curve influence is:

Call IBoundaryBossFeatureData::D1CurveInfluence and IBoundaryBossFeatureData::D2CurveInfluence to determine the type of curve influences in both directions.

This method is not available if the type of tangency is:

Call IBoundaryBossFeatureData::GetGuideTangencyType to determine the type of tangency.

To get a valid range of values for GuideIndex, call IBoundaryBossFeatureData::GetCurvesCount.
