GetSPFFHeaderItem

This call can be used to read a specific header item, the source code example is larger to show and explain how this call can be used.

Syntax

public const string ifcenginedll = @"ifcengine.dll";

[DllImport(IFCEngineDLL, EntryPoint = "GetSPFFHeaderItem")]
public static extern Int32 GetSPFFHeaderItem(int_t model, int_t itemIndex, int_t itemSubIndex, int_t valueType, out IntPtr value);    

Property model

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (value)
The handle to the model. The model handle is static during its existance. Several models can be opened simultaniously within one session. Different models are always independent, threads are allowed to be running on different models simultaniously.

Property itemIndex

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (value)
...

Property itemSubIndex

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (value)
...

Property valueType

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (value)
...

Property value

Size: 32 bit / 4 byte (reference)
