EnumSectionedBodies Method (IComponent2)

Gets the sectioned bodies seen in the specified view and returns them in an enumerated list.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function EnumSectionedBodies( _
   ByVal ViewIn As ModelView _
) As EnumBodies2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IComponent2
Dim ViewIn As ModelView
Dim value As EnumBodies2
value = instance.EnumSectionedBodies(ViewIn)
EnumBodies2 EnumSectionedBodies( 
   ModelView ViewIn
EnumBodies2^ EnumSectionedBodies( 
&   ModelView^ ViewIn



Pointer to the model view displaying the sectioned view

Return Value

Pointer to the enumerated list of bodies


To determine if the model view you want is currently displaying a sectioned view, use IModelView::GetDisplayState.

If you need the full body representation, use IComponent2::GetBodyIPartDoc::GetBodies2, or IPartDoc::EnumBodies3, which ignore the sectioning operation.

For Dispatch implementations, see IComponent2::GetSectionedBodies.

If a component is suppressed or lightweight, this method returns NULL because the component is not loaded into memory by SOLIDWORKS. For more information on lightweight components, see Work With Lightweight Components.
