.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Sub ExtendEntities( _
   const dsObjectPtrArray& BoundaryEntitiesArray As System.Object, _
   const dsObjectPtrArray& EntitiesToExtendArray As System.Object, _
   const dsDoubleArray& PointOnEntityDblArray As System.Object _
void ExtendEntities( 
   System.object BoundaryEntitiesArray,
   System.object EntitiesToExtendArray,
   System.object PointOnEntityDblArray
   BoundaryEntitiesArray : Array,
   EntitiesToExtendArray : Array,
   PointOnEntityDblArray : Array
COM native C++ 
HRESULT ExtendEntities( 
   VARIANT BoundaryEntitiesArray,
   VARIANT EntitiesToExtendArray,
   VARIANT PointOnEntityDblArray
DSRESULT ExtendEntities( 
   const dsObjectPtrArray& BoundaryEntitiesArray,
   const dsObjectPtrArray& EntitiesToExtendArray,
   const dsDoubleArray& PointOnEntityDblArray


Array of entities that make up the boundary edges
Array of entities to extend
Array of the doubles of x, y, and z coordinates of the points on the entities to extend; these points define the sides of the entities that you want to extend


This method works like the DraftSight EXTEND command to extend sketch entities.
