ISwColorContour1 Interface

Allows access to the color and display values of curvature in a SOLIDWORKS model.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Public Interface ISwColorContour1 
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ISwColorContour1
public interface ISwColorContour1 
public interface class ISwColorContour1 



When implemented, the methods of this interface allow you to assign colors and display values of curvature in a SOLIDWORKS model.

To use ISwColorContour1:

  1. Implement the ISwColorContour1 interface in an add-in class.

  2. Install the implemented interface in the SOLIDWORKS software using IModelDocExtension::InstallModelColorizer.

  3. Run the add-in and open a model document in SOLIDWORKS.

  4. In SOLIDWORKS select View > Display > Curvature. The model is colorized by the implemented interface.

  5. When you finalize the application, remove the implemented interface from the SOLIDWORKS software using IModelDocExtension::RemoveModelColorizer.

NOTE: Only one color and display interface can be active at any one time. The last color and display interface installed is the active one. If you remove that color and display interface, then the color and display interface installed before it becomes the active color and display interface.

This interface overrides the color and display functionality of the SOLIDWORKS Curvature tool. See SOLIDWORKS Help for details about the SOLIDWORKS Curvature tool.

To use this interface in a SOLIDWORKS VB.NET or C# macro or add-in, see ComVisibleAttribute in VB.NET and C# Macros and Add-ins.
