ReferencedDocument Property (IView)

Gets the document referenced by this drawing view.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
ReadOnly Property ReferencedDocument As ModelDoc2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IView
Dim value As ModelDoc2
value = instance.ReferencedDocument
ModelDoc2 ReferencedDocument {get;}
property ModelDoc2^ ReferencedDocument {
   ModelDoc2^ get();

Property Value

Model document



Because section views do not have referenced documents, this method returns an empty string for this type of view. Instead, use IView::GetBaseView or IView::IGetBaseView to get the parent view of a section, and then get its referenced document from that view.
