IGetIntersectionEdgeCount Method (IBody2)

Gets the number of intersecting edges between this body and the specified tool body.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetIntersectionEdgeCount( _
   ByVal ToolBodyIn As Body2 _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBody2
Dim ToolBodyIn As Body2
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.IGetIntersectionEdgeCount(ToolBodyIn)
System.int IGetIntersectionEdgeCount( 
   Body2 ToolBodyIn
System.int IGetIntersectionEdgeCount( 
&   Body2^ ToolBodyIn



Pointer to the temporary body used to perform the intersection


You can use the return value from this method with IBody2::GetIntersectionEdges and IBody2::IGetIntersectionEdges


If the two bodies are in an assembly, then IBody2::GetIntersectionEdges and IBody2::IGetIntersectionEdges generate a list of the intersection edges between the two bodies. To do this, the second body must be transformed in its coordinate space so that it is positioned the same with respect to the first body as it is in assembly space.


To align the two bodies before calling IBody2::GetIntersectionEdges, IBody2::IGetIntersectionEdges, or Body2::IGetIntersectionEdgeCount , calculate the transformation from the first body to the second body and set this as the transform for the second body using IBody2::ApplyTransform.
