# GetGeomPosFromLength Method

## Description

Gets the position a specified length along the geometry of the current open Item.

## Syntax

Visual Basic |
---|

Public Function GetGeomPosFromLength( _ ByVal |

## Parameters

*nGeom*- The index of the geometry component, starting at 0. Use GetNumGeom to get the number of geometry components in an
**Item**. *arclen*- The length along the geometry component.

## Return Type

## Remarks

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

Items such as blocks, groups, MultiLineStrings, 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.
