DivergeFromAxis Property (IExplodeStep)

Gets or sets whether to move components at an angle from the explode direction of this radial explode step.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property DivergeFromAxis As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IExplodeStep
Dim value As System.Boolean
instance.DivergeFromAxis = value
value = instance.DivergeFromAxis
System.bool DivergeFromAxis {get; set;}
property System.bool DivergeFromAxis {
   System.bool get();
   void set ( &   System.bool value);

Property Value

True to move components at an angle from the explode direction, false to not (see Remarks)


See the IExplodeStep examples.


This property is valid only if IExplodeStep::ExplodeStepType is set to swAssemblyExplodeStepType_e.swAssemblyExplodeStepType_Radial.

If you set this property to false, then IExplodeStep::DivergeDirection is automatically set to nothing or null.

If you want to set this property to true, then you must first set IExplodeStep::DivergeDirection to a valid diverge direction entity.
