This method is equivalent to interactively setting system options in the SOLIDWORKS software.

To use this method, choose one of the items from the swUserPreferenceDoubleValue_e enumeration. Then, call this method and pass in the desired user preference from the swUserPreferenceDoubleValue_e enumeration and the desired value for that user preference.

For a description of the user-preference types and which object supports that type, see swUserPreferenceDoubleValue_e.
