Information about element cut part geometry in section views

SzokeFerenc

Hello Everyone!

 

Please give me hints if there's a structure or method in the API which stores info or retrieves info about the cut geometry (especially the cut suface contours) of elements in section views. If I make an inventory of the elements present in a section database I get all the visible SectElemType elements, which don't have a memo (no geometry data). If I check the parent elements of the SectElemType elements I don't find any data that seem to store the geometry of the cut part.

Is this something that need to be calculated every time the section view is activated?

I want to label elements in the section view and I want to control the position of the label, that's why I need the geometry of the cut and uncut surfaces.

Any help or example pointing into the right direction is appreciated!
