Interface ISnapGrid

All Superinterfaces:
Serializable
All Known Implementing Classes:
SnapGrid

public interface ISnapGrid
extends Serializable

Provides access to members that control the Snapping grid.

Remarks

The layout view supports a snap grid, which is a grid of reference points on the layout used to help position elements. The grid may be used as a visual indicator of size and position, or it may be used to snap elements into position.
The primary interface on the SnapGrid object is ISnapGrid. Use this interface to change the gridís horizontal and vertical spacing and control whether or not the grid is visible.
