   ByVal Uniform As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal Xscale As System.Double, _
   ByVal YScale As System.Double, _
   ByVal ZScale As System.Double _
) As Feature
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IFeatureManager
Dim Type As System.Short
Dim Uniform As System.Boolean
Dim Xscale As System.Double
Dim YScale As System.Double
Dim ZScale As System.Double
Dim value As Feature
 
value = instance.InsertScale(Type, Uniform, Xscale, YScale, ZScale)
C# 
Feature InsertScale( 
   System.short Type,
   System.bool Uniform,
   System.double Xscale,
   System.double YScale,
   System.double ZScale
)
C++/CLI 
Feature^ InsertScale( 
&   System.short Type,
&   System.bool Uniform,
&   System.double Xscale,
&   System.double YScale,
&   System.double ZScale
) 

Parameters

Type

Value as defined in swScaleType_e

Uniform

True if scaling should be uniform, false if not

Xscale

X direction scale factor

YScale

Y direction scale factor; valid only if Uniform is false

ZScale

Z direction scale factor; valid only if Uniform is false

Return Value

IFeature if scaling the current model; Null or Nothing if scaling a selected graphic body

Example

Remarks

To scale a graphic body:

  1. Select the graphic body in the Graphic Bodies folder of the FeatureManager design tree.
  2. Call this method.

This method scales the selected graphic body up in the graphics view, but no scale feature is created.

If Uniform is...

Then the scaling factor is...

True

Xscale, applied in three directions.

False

All three scaling factors (Xscale, YScale, and ZScale).

Use IFeature::GetDefinition and IFeature::IGetDefinition and IFeature::ModifyDefinition and IFeature::IModifyDefinition2 to gain access to the IScaleFeatureData object.
