.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetMaterialPropertyValues2( _
   ByVal Config_opt As System.Integer, _
   ByVal Config_count As System.Integer, _
   ByRef Config_names As System.String _
) As System.Double
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IComponent2
Dim Config_opt As System.Integer
Dim Config_count As System.Integer
Dim Config_names As System.String
Dim value As System.Double
value = instance.IGetMaterialPropertyValues2(Config_opt, Config_count, Config_names)
System.double IGetMaterialPropertyValues2( 
   System.int Config_opt,
   System.int Config_count,
   ref System.string Config_names
System.double IGetMaterialPropertyValues2( 
&   System.int Config_opt,
&   System.int Config_count,
&   System.String^% Config_names


Configuration option as defined in swInConfigurationOpts_e
Number of configurations for this component
Array of configuration names for this component (see Remarks)

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of doubles of size 9 doubles (see Remarks)
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

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

  • Remarks

    If you set Config_opt to swThisConfiguration or swAllConfiguration, then pass an empty array because Config_names is ignored.

    The format of material_values is an array of doubles:

    [ R, G, B, Ambient, Diffuse, Specular, Shininess, Transparency, Emission ]

    Valid values are from 0 to 1 for all variables. If material_values is all -1 values, then material property values were not assigned to the component. Therefore, the component will have the default properties in the user interface.
