IGetFirstView Method (IDrawingDoc)

Gets the first drawing view on the current sheet.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetFirstView() As View
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IDrawingDoc
Dim value As View
value = instance.IGetFirstView()
View IGetFirstView()
View^ IGetFirstView(); 

Return Value

Pointer to the first drawing view in this drawing document



This method might be useful for starting an iteration through all the drawing views on the current sheet.

Because the drawing sheet also has sketch geometry, notes, GTols, and so on, this method returns the current drawing sheet. The next view returned by IView::GetNextView is the first drawing view in the current sheet.
