SaveCurrentSortParameters Property (IBomTableSortData)

Gets and sets whether to save the current sort settings in the BOM table in the drawing.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property SaveCurrentSortParameters As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IBomTableSortData
Dim value As System.Boolean
instance.SaveCurrentSortParameters = value
value = instance.SaveCurrentSortParameters
System.bool SaveCurrentSortParameters {get; set;}
property System.bool SaveCurrentSortParameters {
   System.bool get();
   void set ( &   System.bool value);

Property Value

True to save the current sort settings in the BOM table, false to not


See the IBomTableSortData examples.


After setting this property to true, you must call IBomTableAnnotation::Sort to actually save the sort settings in the BOM table in the drawing. Thereafter, instead of setting all of the sorting parameters every time you instantiate a new IBomTableAnnotation for this table, you can simply call IBomTableAnnotation::ApplySavedSortScheme to re-sort the table using the sort settings saved in the BOM table.
