Get the X coordinate associated with the specified column of the matrix.


double GetXValue( int iColumn )


[input] Input column number (0 based offset)


Returns the X coordinate value of the specified column on success and NANUM on failure.



// Get the X coordinate of the specific column of a matrix
void Matrix_GetXValue_ex1()
// This sample code will print a message like below:
//     Target matrix is Matrix1.
//     X value at 2nd column is 50. (Min=0, Max=100);
    double dXValue;

    matrix<double> mat1 = {
        {1, 1, 1},
        {1, 1, 1}

    MatrixPage MatPg1;
    MatrixLayer MatLy1 = MatPg1.Layers(0);
    Matrix Mat1(MatLy1);
    Mat1 = mat1;
    printf("  Target matrix is %s.\n",Mat1.GetName());

    Mat1.SetXMin(0);   // Set the X coordinate of 1st row
    Mat1.SetXMax(100);   // Set the X coordinate of last row
    dXValue = Mat1.GetXValue(1); // Get X coordinate of 2nd column (arg is 0-based)
    printf("  X value at 2nd column is %g. (Min=0, Max=100)\n", 
        dXValue); // Print out the X coordinate


In addition to the values displayed in the cells of an internal Origin matrix (nominally Z values), Origin matrices map X coordinate values to the columns and Y coordinate values to the rows of the matrix. The GetXValue function gets the X coordinate associated with the specified column of the matrix. An error will result if the matrix coordinate map or column number is not valid.
