CopyWithMates Method (IAssemblyDoc)

Copies one or more components with mates to this assembly.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function CopyWithMates( _
   ByVal ComponentsToCopy As System.Object, _
   ByVal Repeat As System.Object, _
   ByVal NewEnityToMateTo As System.Object, _
   ByVal Values As System.Object, _
   ByVal FlipAlignment As System.Object _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim ComponentsToCopy As System.Object
Dim Repeat As System.Object
Dim NewEnityToMateTo As System.Object
Dim Values As System.Object
Dim FlipAlignment As System.Object
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.CopyWithMates(ComponentsToCopy, Repeat, NewEnityToMateTo, Values, FlipAlignment)
System.bool CopyWithMates( 
   System.object ComponentsToCopy,
   System.object Repeat,
   System.object NewEnityToMateTo,
   System.object Values,
   System.object FlipAlignment
System.bool CopyWithMates( 
&   System.Object^ ComponentsToCopy,
&   System.Object^ Repeat,
&   System.Object^ NewEnityToMateTo,
&   System.Object^ Values,
&   System.Object^ FlipAlignment


Array of components to be copied
Array of boolean values; each value indicates whether to use the existing mate reference for the corresponding component to be copied: if true, copies the existing mate reference; if false, uses the corresponding entry in NewEntityToMateTo for the new mate reference
Array of new mate references that map to the Repeat arrays; if an entry in the Repeat array is false, then the corresponding entry in this array is the new entity to mate with the component to be copied
Array of distance or angle values for the mate references; specify only for distance and angle mates: specify distance in meters and angle in radians
Array of booleans that map to the NewEntityToMateTo array; each value indicates the corresponding mate's alignment (true to flip alignment, false otherwise)

Return Value

True if method call is successful; false otherwise
