System.int GetSuppression()
System.int GetSuppression(); 

Return Value

Suppression state of this component instance as defined in swComponentSuppressionState_e



Use this method to determine if the component is suppressed, lightweight, or fully resolved. It is critical to know the component's suppression state because lightweight and suppressed components contain only a small subset of data compared to a fully resolved component.
