WeldMark Class

The WeldMark class defines a drawing object that illustrates a weld mark in a specific view. WeldMark class refers to welding marks that appear when creating/updating drawing views. In this case, ModelIdentifier has a value. WeldMark class also refers to weld marks created with drawing editor UI. In this case, ModelIdentifier value is zero. Graphical representation of welding marks (line and text properties) can be modified using .wel setting files. The welding mark settting files (.wls) cannot be used to modify instances of WeldMark class.

Public methodGetObjects(Type)
Gets the children objects of the current object that are of certain types.
Public methodGetRelatedObjects
Gets the related objects of the current object.
(Inherited from DrawingObject.)
Public methodGetRelatedObjects(Type)

(Overrides DatabaseObjectModify.)
Public methodMoveObjectRelative
Moves the object using the move vector.
Public methodSelect
Selects the weld mark from the current drawing database.
(Overrides DatabaseObjectSelect.)
Public methodSetUserProperty(String, Double)

(Inherited from DatabaseObject.)
Public methodSetUserProperty(String, Int32)
Sets an integer property for the drawing object. The object has to be in a drawing before the method can be used.
(Inherited from DatabaseObject.)
Public methodSetUserProperty(String, String)
Sets a string property for the drawing object. The object has to be in a drawing before the method can be used.
(Inherited from DatabaseObject.)
Public methodToString
Changes the string presentation of the drawing object.
(Inherited from DrawingObject.)

Examples
The following code modifies a weld mark in the current drawing:
using Tekla.Structures.Drawing;
using Tekla.Structures.Geometry3d;

public class WeldMarkExample
{
    public void WeldMarkModify()
    {
        DrawingHandler myDrawingHandler = new DrawingHandler();
        DrawingObjectSelector dos = myDrawingHandler.GetDrawingObjectSelector();
        DrawingObjectEnumerator allObjectsOnSheet = dos.GetSelected();
        while (allObjectsOnSheet.MoveNext())
        {
            if (allObjectsOnSheet.Current is Tekla.Structures.Drawing.WeldMark)
            {
                WeldMark weldMark = allObjectsOnSheet.Current as Tekla.Structures.Drawing.WeldMark;
                weldMark.Modify();
            }
        }
    }
