Parameters

BasePatternOn
Base pattern type as defined in dsBasePatternOn_e
AngleBetween
Angle between the base points of the pattern entities and the center of the pattern; valid when dsBasePatternOn is dsBasePatternOn_e.AngleBetweenAndElementsNumbers or dsBasePatternOn_e.dsBasePatternOn_FillAngleAndAngleBetween; in radians
FillAngle
Positive or negative value for the fill angle; valid when BasePatternOn is dsBasePatternOn_e.dsBasePatternOn_FillAngleAndAngleBetween or dsBasePatternOn_e.dsBasePatternOn_FillAngleAndElementsNumber; in radians
TotalNumber
Total number of entities in the pattern, including the original entity
ElementBasePointX
x coordinate of the base point of the pattern
ElementBasePointY
y coordinate of the base point of the pattern
AxisPointX
x coordinate for the center point of the pattern
AxisPointY
y coordinate for the center point of the pattern
OrientElementsAboutAxis
True to rotate the entities as they are patterned, false to align the entities to the source entity
EntityTypeLongArray
Array of longs of the types of entities as defined in dsObjectType_e
EntitiesArray
Array of entities to pattern
