LAnnAutomation::GetDistance

#include "ltwrappr.h"

virtual L_INT LAnnAutomation::GetDistance(pdDistance, pdDistance2=0)

L_DOUBLE *pdDistance;

address of the variable that will be updated with the distance of a ruler object

L_DOUBLE *pdDistance2;

address of the variable that will be updated with the distance of a ruler object

Gets the distance of the Ruler object(s) in the object's unit of measurement, set by LAnnAutomation::SetUnit.

Parameter

Description

pdDistance

Address of the variable to be updated with the distance of the ruler object. For objects having only one ruler, this variable will be updated with the length. For cross products, which have two rulers, this variable will be updated with the length of the primary ruler.

pdDistance2

Address of the variable to be updated with the distance of the ruler object. For cross products and protractors, which have two rulers, this variable will be updated with the length of the secondary ruler.

Comments

Either pdDistance or pdDistance2 can be NULL, but not both. If either of these pointers is NULL, the distance for that ruler will not be retrieved.

Returns

SUCCESS

The function was successful.

< 1

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.
