LAnnPolyRuler::GetDistance

#include "ltwrappr.h"

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

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

Parameters

L_DOUBLE *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.

L_DOUBLE *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.
