AddComponents3 Method (IAssemblyDoc)

Adds multiple components to the assembly.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function AddComponents3( _
   ByVal Names As Object, _
   ByVal Transforms As Object, _
   ByVal CoordinateSystemNames As Object _
) As Object
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim Names As Object
Dim Transforms As Object
Dim CoordinateSystemNames As Object
Dim value As Object
value = instance.AddComponents3(Names, Transforms, CoordinateSystemNames)
object AddComponents3( 
   object Names,
   object Transforms,
   object CoordinateSystemNames
Object^ AddComponents3( 
&   Object^ Names,
&   Object^ Transforms,
&   Object^ CoordinateSystemNames


Array of full path names of components
Array of transformation matrix doubles
Array of coordinate system names

Return Value

Array of IComponent2 objects



Transforms contains an array of [(Names count) x 16] doubles. This parameter stores one transformation matrix of 16 doubles for each component in Names. If a component's transformation matrix is null, then the component is placed in the assembly such that the component's user-defined coordinate system coincides exactly with the default coordinate system of the assembly (no transformation). See IMathTransform for details about transformation matrices.

CoordinateSystemNames contains a user-defined coordinate system name for each component in Names. If a component's user-defined coordinate system is an empty string, then the component is placed in the assembly with respect to the default coordinate system of the component.

TIP: See ISldWorks::OpenDoc6 for tips on how to avoid using large amounts of memory when opening up multiple parts to add to an assembly
