Get/Set Methods

Return Value or <Value>


Rotate and Pan - Rotate width


ISldWorks::SetUserPreferenceDoubleValue(swUserPreferenceDoubleValue_e.swSystemTouchRotateWidth, <Value>)  

Double value:

  • 0 = Interpret the two-finger gesture as a Pan
  • >0 = Interpret this maximum initial two-finger distance as a Rotate


Rotate and Pan - Rotate versus pan threshold


ISldWorks::SetUserPreferenceDoubleValue(swUserPreferenceDoubleValue_e.swSystemTouchRotateVersusPanThreshold, <Value>)  

Double value:

  • 0 = Interpret any two-finger distance greater than the Rotate width as a Pan
  • >0 (see Comment)

The sum of the non-zero threshold value and the Rotate width determines how SOLIDWORKS interprets two-finger gestures:

When the two-finger distance is... SOLIDWORKS...
Less than the sum and greater than the Rotate width Does not interpret the gesture
Greater than the sum Interprets the gesture as a Pan
Less than the Rotate width Interprets the gesture as a Rotate
