InsertEnvelope Method (IAssemblyDoc)

Adds an envelope in the specified configuration name in this assembly.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertEnvelope( _
   ByVal CompName As System.String, _
   ByVal ConfigName As System.String, _
   ByVal X As System.Double, _
   ByVal Y As System.Double, _
   ByVal Z As System.Double _
) As Component2
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim CompName As System.String
Dim ConfigName As System.String
Dim X As System.Double
Dim Y As System.Double
Dim Z As System.Double
Dim value As Component2
value = instance.InsertEnvelope(CompName, ConfigName, X, Y, Z)
Component2 InsertEnvelope( 
   System.string CompName,
   System.string ConfigName,
   System.double X,
   System.double Y,
   System.double Z
Component2^ InsertEnvelope( 
&   System.String^ CompName,
&   System.String^ ConfigName,
&   System.double X,
&   System.double Y,
&   System.double Z


Path and file name of file containing a part to insert as an envelope
Name of the configuration from which to load the envelope component
X coordinate of the center of the envelope component's bounding box
Y coordinate of the center of the envelope component's bounding box
Z coordinate of the center of the envelope component's bounding box

Return Value



CompName does not have to be open before running this method. If it is not open, then this method opens it in a hidden state.


If ConfigName is empty or specifies a configuration that does not exist, then the current configuration is used.


The X, Y, Z parameters of this method are the center of the component bounding box. You must use IComponent2::Transform2 on the return interface pointer if you want to more precisely position the component.
