GetSheets2 Method (IDocument)
Array of Sheets

Gets the Sheets for the document.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetSheets2() As System.Object
System.object GetSheets2()
GetSheets2() : Array
COM native C++ 
HRESULT GetSheets2(
   VARIANT* SheetArray
DSRESULT GetSheets2(
   dsObjectPtrArray* SheetArray


SheetArray[out] or Return Value
Array of Sheets


This code snippet shows how to get the Sheets in a document.

COM native C++

_variant_t pVariantArray = dsDoc->GetSheets2();
    if( V_VT( &pVariantArray ) != VT_EMPTY )


                . . .




The difference between this method and the now obsolete IDocument::GetSheets is that the obsolete method returned the model as the first element in the array. This method returns all of the Sheets in the drawing, excluding the model.
