.NET Syntax

   ByVal Text As System.String _
) As Comment
Visual Basic (Usage)

   System.string Text
Comment^ AddComment( 
&   System.String^ Text



Comment to add to the document's Comment folder

Return Value

Comment folder



A comment is added to the document's Comment folder, and the comment is associated with the preselected item when this method is run.  


For example:



Then the comment is...

A feature is preselected

Associated with the feature (equivalent to running the IFeature::AddComment on the selected feature)

The Comment folder is preselected

Not associated with any feature, but is added to the Comment folder (equivalent to running the ICommentFolder::AddComment method)


Although it might appear that ModelDocExtension::AddComment duplicates IFeature::AddComment and ICommentFolder::AddComment, IModelDocExtension::AddComment is used when recording macros, so it is different. IModelDocExtension::AddComment shares code with the user interface, so it should behave identical to the user interface.


IModelDocExtension::AddComment rebuilds the FeatureManager design tree automatically, which can be a time-consuming operation if the FeatureManager design tree gets large. Take this into consideration before using it.
