GetEdges Method (ILoop2)

Gets all the edges in the loop.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetEdges() As System.Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ILoop2
Dim value As System.Object
value = instance.GetEdges()
System.object GetEdges()
System.Object^ GetEdges(); 

Return Value

Array of edges that make up the loop



The IEdge objects are returned in a clockwise (CW) or counter-clockwise (CCW) manner based on the direction of the ILoop2.

The loop direction is determined as follows: if a loop is viewed along its direction, with the face normal pointing upwards, then the face that owns the loop is to the left. This means that inner loops are CW and outer loops are CCW. To determine if a loop is an outer loop, use ILoop2::IsOuter.

Because an edge is shared by multiple loops, the edge direction might be opposite to the direction of the ILoop2. To check this, use IEdge::EdgeInFaceSense.

If the loop is a singular loop, use ILoop2::GetVertices to get its position (a single vertex). ILoop2::GetEdges returns an empty array if the loop is singular.
