) As Component2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim FeatureIn As Feature
Dim NumComponents As System.Integer
Dim value As Component2
value = instance.IGetFeatureScope(FeatureIn, NumComponents)
Component2 IGetFeatureScope(

   System.int NumComponents
Component2^ IGetFeatureScope( 
&   Feature^ FeatureIn,
&   System.int NumComponents


Number of components affected by this feature

Array of components of size NumComponents


Feature scope information is only provided if the assembly is opened in its own window.

COM users must call IAssemblyDoc::GetFeatureScopeCount before calling this method.

This method gets both the components affected and potentially affected by this feature. Thus, not all of the components in this list are necessarily affected by this feature.
