InsertLeader Method (ISketchManager)

Inserts a Leader.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertLeader( _
   const dsDoubleArray& VertexCoordinateDblArray As System.Object, _
   double NoteWidth As System.Double, _
   const dsString& NoteText As System.String _
) As Leader
Leader InsertLeader( 
   System.object VertexCoordinateDblArray,
   System.double NoteWidth,
   System.string NoteText
   VertexCoordinateDblArray : Array,
   NoteWidth : Number,
   NoteText : String
) : dsLeader
COM native C++ 
HRESULT InsertLeader( 
   VARIANT VertexCoordinateDblArray,
   DOUBLE NoteWidth,
   BSTR NoteText,
   ILeader** Leader
DSRESULT InsertLeader( 
   const dsDoubleArray& VertexCoordinateDblArray,
   double NoteWidth,
   const dsString& NoteText,
   dsLeader** Leader


Array of x, y, and z coordinates indicating the start point for the Leader and the segment vertices to define the Leader (see Remarks)
Width of Note
Note text (see Remarks)
Leader[out] or Return Value



The size of VertexCoordinateDblArray is (3 * (Number of vertices)). The order of the elements in the array is (x1, y1, z1, x2, y2, z2...).

The x1, y1, and z1 coordinates in the array represent the start point; all subsequent xn, yn, and zn coordinates represent segment vertices.

The NoteText parameter is ignored when the leader is created in temporary mode.
