EnablePresentation Property (IAssemblyDoc)

Gets or sets whether the assembly is in presentation mode.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Property EnablePresentation As Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim value As Boolean
instance.EnablePresentation = value
value = instance.EnablePresentation
bool EnablePresentation {get; set;}
property bool EnablePresentation {
   bool get();
   void set (bool value);

Return Value

True enables presentation mode, false disables it


Call this property before calling IComponent2::PresentationTransform because presentation transforms are effective only in this mode. This property prohibits reconfiguring the FeatureManager design tree when SolidWorks is using the presentation transforms. This property also prohibits selections in the model view.
