NOTE: Setting any of the following weld table values means that new weld tables added to the drawing use these default values. However, a weld table that uses a template table for insertion might not use these default values because the template table contains certain properties that take precedence over these default values.

Border - Box Border

IModelDocExtension::GetUserPreferenceInteger(swUserPreferenceIntegerValue_e.swDetailingWeldTableBorderLineWeight, swUserPreferenceOption_e.swDetailingNoOptionSpecified)

See swLineWeights_e for valid options


Border - Grid Border

ModelDocExtension::GetUserPreferenceInteger(swUserPreferenceIntegerValue_e.swDetailingWeldTableGridLineWeight, swUserPreferenceOption_e.swDetailingNoOptionSpecified)

IModelDocExtension::SetUserPreferenceInteger(swUserPreferenceIntegerValue_e.swDetailingWeldTableGridLineWeight, swUserPreferenceOption_e.swDetailingNoOptionSpecified, swLineWeights_e.<Value>)

See swLineWeights_e for valid options
