Parameters

TolType
Type of tolerance as defined in swTolType_e
TolMax
Maximum value for the tolerance
TolMin
Minimum value for the tolerance
TolMaxFit
Text for the maximum FIT value when using a fit tolerance type
TolMinFit

Text for the minimum FIT value when using a fit tolerance type

UseDocPrec
True to use the document's precision value, false to use value specified for Precision
Precision
Precision to use for this dimension if UseDocPrec is false
ArrowsIn
Arrow direction as defined in swDimensionArrowsSide_e
UseDocArrows
True to use the document's arrow types, false to use values specified for Arrow1 and Arrow2
Arrow1
Type of arrow to use for the first arrow of this dimension as defined in swArrowStyle_e if UseDocArrows is false
Arrow2
Type of arrow to use for the second arrow of this dimension as defined in swArrowStyle_e if UseDocArrows is false
PrefixText
Text for the prefix of the dimension
SuffixText
Text for the suffix of the dimension
ShowValue
True to display the value of the dimension in the user interface, false to not
CalloutText1
Callout text to display above the dimension
CalloutText2
Callout text to display below the dimension
DimensionLowerText
Text to display below the dimension line; valid for display dimensions in drawings only
CenterText
True to center the text in the dimension, false to not
ConfigOption
Configuration option as defined in swInConfigurationOpts_e
Count
Number of configurations
ConfigNames
  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to an array of configuration names to which to apply these edits (see Remarks)
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported

See In-process Methods for details about this type of method.

Return Value

True if the dimension is modified, false if not

Remarks

This method:

  • always changes the dimension's parameters in the active configuration. For example, if you specify swInConfigurationOpts_e.swSpecifyConfiguration for ConfigOption and do not specify the name of the active configuration in ConfigNames, then the dimension parameters in the active configuration are affected.
  • does not support hole callouts.
