GetBulge method example

Private Sub GetBulge_Example()

     ' This example adds a polyline to the drawing.

     ' It then uses the GetBulge method to obtain the bulge factor

     ' and the SetBulge to change it.

     Dim myDoc As progeCAD.Document

     Dim myPline As progeCAD.LWPolyline

     Dim myPoints As points

     Dim pt As Point

     Set myDoc = ActiveDocument

     Set myPoints = Library.CreatePoints

     Set pt = Library.CreatePoint(1, 1, 0)


     myPoints(myPoints.Count).x = pt.x

     myPoints(myPoints.Count).y = pt.y

     myPoints(myPoints.Count).z = pt.z

     Set pt = Library.CreatePoint(3, 3, 0)


     myPoints(myPoints.Count).x = pt.x

     myPoints(myPoints.Count).y = pt.y

     myPoints(myPoints.Count).z = pt.z

     Set pt = Library.CreatePoint(7, 4, 0)


     myPoints(myPoints.Count).x = pt.x

     myPoints(myPoints.Count).y = pt.y

     myPoints(myPoints.Count).z = pt.z

     Set myPline = ThisDocument.ModelSpace.AddLightWeightPolyline(myPoints)



     ' Find the bulge of the 2nd segment

     Dim currentBulge As Double

     currentBulge = myPline.GetBulge(2)


     MsgBox "The bulge for the second segment is " & currentBulge, , "Get/SetBulge Example"


     ' Change the bulge of the 2nd segment

     myPline.SetBulge 2, 1.3


     MsgBox "The bulge for the second segment is now " & myPline.GetBulge(2), , "Get/SetBulge Example"
