AutoExplode Method (IAssemblyDoc)

Automatically generates an exploded view of the current assembly configuration.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function AutoExplode() As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.AutoExplode()
System.bool AutoExplode()
System.bool AutoExplode(); 

Return Value

True if the exploded view is automatically generated, false if not


See the IExplodeStep examples.



This method creates only one exploded view per assembly configuration. To create multiple exploded views, use IAssemblyDoc::CreateExplodedView.

It is difficult to get the exploded view perfect without some user interaction. However, this method makes an attempt based on the current mate conditions.
