AppendOuterLoop Method

Appends an outer loop to the hatch.

See Also | Example


object.AppendOuterLoop loop


The object or objects this method applies to.


Object (array of objects); input-only
An array of objects forming a closed boundary. The array can consist of one or more objects. If more than one object is used, their endpoints must coincide for the loop to be created properly. The loop may contain the following types of objects: Line, Polyline, Circle, Ellipse, Spline, Region


After the Hatch object has been created using the AddHatch method, add the outer loop. The outer loop must be closed and must be created before any inner loops can be added. After a valid outer loop has been created, add any inner loops, one at a time, using the AppendInnerLoop method.

Once you have finished defining the boundaries for the hatch, use the Evaluate method to calculate the hatch lines or fill for the boundaries, then use the Regen method to update the display of the hatch.
