Points and CenterPoints

Top  Previous  Next

The difference between these two sorts of points is that CenterPoints are displayed as center points:

 

 

Inventor-Center-Points

 

Programatically the difference is here:

 

 

   CComPtr<SketchPoint> pInventorPt;

   pSketch->SketchPoints->Add (pThePoint,VARIANT_TRUE,&pInventorPt);

 

That VARIANT_TRUE says "show as center point". Otherwise you should use VARIANT_FALSE.

 

You can get the setting for this in two ways:

 

   VARIANT_BOOL bHoleCenter ;

   pInventorPt->get_HoleCenter (&bHoleCenter) ; // first method

 

   bHoleCenter = pInventorPt->HoleCenter ; // second method
