public sealed class GridPlane : GridSurface

The GridPlane type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  Name Description
Public method GridPlane
Creates a new grid plane instance.

The default values are as follows:

  • Plane = new Plane();
  • Plane.Origin = new Point(500.0, 500.0, 0.0);
  • Plane.AxisX = new Vector(2000.0, 0.0, 0.0);
  • Plane.AxisY = new Vector(0.0, 0.0, 2000.0);
  • Label = "Default";
  • IsMagnetic = false;
  • ExtensionLeft = 2000.0;
  • ExtensionRight = 2000.0;
  • ExtensionBelow = 2000.0;
  • ExtensionAbove = 2000.0;
  • DrawingVisibility = false;
Public method GridPlane(Plane, String)
Creates a new grid plane instance taking the plane and label as input.

Public property DrawingVisibility
The visibility of the grid surface in drawings.
Public property ExtensionAbove
The line extension above.
Public property ExtensionBelow
The line extension below.
Public property ExtensionForMagneticArea Obsolete.
The extension for the magnetic area.
Public property ExtensionLeft
The line extension on the left.
Public property ExtensionRight
The line extension on the right.
Public property Father Obsolete.
The father grid of the grid plane.
Public property Identifier
The identifier of the object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public property IsMagnetic
Whether the grid surface is magnetic or not.
Public property IsManual
Gets or sets if the line was manually created.
(Inherited from GridSurface.)
Public property IsUpToDate
Gets if the object does not have a modification which is not shared.
(Inherited from ModelObject.)
Public property Label
The label for the grid surface.
Public property ModificationTime
Gets latest time of the object was modified or created.
(Inherited from ModelObject.)
Public property Parent
The parent grid of the grid surface.
(Inherited from GridSurface.)
Public property Plane
The plane defining the position of the grid plane.
