.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function SetPlyParameters2( _
   ByVal NPly As System.Integer, _
   ByVal DThickness As System.Double, _
   ByVal DAngle As System.Double, _
   ByVal SMaterialLibName As System.String, _
   ByVal SMaterialName As System.String _
) As System.Integer
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICWCompositeShellOptions
Dim NPly As System.Integer
Dim DThickness As System.Double
Dim DAngle As System.Double
Dim SMaterialLibName As System.String
Dim SMaterialName As System.String
Dim value As System.Integer
value = instance.SetPlyParameters2(NPly, DThickness, DAngle, SMaterialLibName, SMaterialName)

   System.int NPly,
   System.double DThickness,
   System.double DAngle,
   System.string SMaterialLibName,
   System.string SMaterialName
System.int SetPlyParameters2( 
&   System.int NPly,
&   System.double DThickness,
&   System.double DAngle,
&   System.String^ SMaterialLibName,
&   System.String^ SMaterialName

Return Value

Error code as defined in swsCompositeShellOptionsError_e


See the ICWCompositeShellOptions examples.


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
