IGetFlattenSheetMetalPersistReference Method (IModelDocExtension)

Gets a byte array of persistent reference IDs for the specified entity (a face, edge, or vertex) in a flattened sheet metal part.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function IGetFlattenSheetMetalPersistReference( _
   ByVal DispObj As System.Object, _
   ByVal Count As System.Integer _
) As System.Byte
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IModelDocExtension
Dim DispObj As System.Object
Dim Count As System.Integer
Dim value As System.Byte
value = instance.IGetFlattenSheetMetalPersistReference(DispObj, Count)
System.byte IGetFlattenSheetMetalPersistReference( 
   System.object DispObj,
   System.int Count
System.byte IGetFlattenSheetMetalPersistReference( 
&   System.Object^ DispObj,
&   System.int Count


Entity (a face, edge, or vertex) in the flattened sheet metal part whose persistent reference IDs you want
Number of persistent reference IDs

Return Value

  • in-process, unmanaged C++: Pointer to a byte array of persistent reference IDs
  • VBA, VB.NET, C#, and C++/CLI: Not supported


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

  • Remarks

    The sheet metal part must be in the flattened state when this method is called. You can pass the byte array of persistent reference IDs to IModelDocExtension::GetSheetMetalObjectsByPersistReference or IModelDocExtension::IGetSheetMetalObjectsByPersistReference, which gets the objects that correspond to the persistent reference IDs in the folded configuration of the sheet metal part.

    See Persistent Reference IDs for more information.
