Return Value

Parameter (see Remarks)



Most parameters are dimensions.

The StringIn argument must be the fully qualified dimension name (for example, "D1@Base-Extrude") for this method. However, the full dimension name is not needed if you use IFeature::IParameter or IFeature::Parameter.

Some characters are recognized as special characters. The use of these characters in names or parts or features can cause this method to fail to return a dimension. These special characters are not recognized in names of parts or features:

  • at sign ( @ )

  • period ( . )

  • backslash ( / )
