GetPlyParameters Method (ICWCompositeShellOptions)

Gets the thickness, angle, and material for the specified ply.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function GetPlyParameters( _
   ByVal NPly As System.Integer, _
   ByRef DThickness As System.Double, _
   ByRef DAngle As System.Double, _
   ByRef NErrorCode As System.Integer _
) As CWMaterial
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWCompositeShellOptions
Dim NPly As System.Integer
Dim DThickness As System.Double
Dim DAngle As System.Double
Dim NErrorCode As System.Integer
Dim value As CWMaterial
value = instance.GetPlyParameters(NPly, DThickness, DAngle, NErrorCode)
CWMaterial GetPlyParameters( 
   System.int NPly,
   out System.double DThickness,
   out System.double DAngle,
   out System.int NErrorCode
CWMaterial^ GetPlyParameters( 
&   System.int NPly,
&   [Out] System.double DThickness,
&   [Out] System.double DAngle,
&   [Out] System.int NErrorCode


Index of ply (see Remarks)
Thickness of ply
Angle of ply (see Remarks)
Error code as defined in swsCompositeShellOptionsError_e

Return Value



Call ICWCompositeShellOptions::GetTotalPlies to set NPly.

If ICWCompositeShellOptions::PlyRelativeAngle is set to... Then DAngle's value is...
1 Relative to the angle of ply 1
0 Absolute
