Public Function GetGeomLength( _ ByVal |

## Parameters

*nGeom*- The index of the geometry component, starting at 0.

## Return Type

The length of the geometry component.

## Remarks

Use GetNumGeom to get the number of geometry components in an **Item**.

Items such as blocks, groups, MultiLineString, and so on, can be made up of multiple geometry. Therefore the value of nGeom can be greater than 0. Items such as LineString items, polygons, symbols, and so on, are made by a single piece of geometry. Therefore the value would be 0.
