Returns the X, Y and Z translation values for this transformation.

Note: This method uses output arguments. C# and some scripting languages (such as JScript and PerlScript) don't support arguments passed by reference. However, there is a alternate version of this method which is considered safe to use with C#, JScript and PerlScript: SITransformation.GetTranslationValues2

C# Syntax

SITransformation.GetTranslationValues( Object& out_pvarX, Object& out_pvarY, Object& out_pvarZ );

Scripting Syntax

SITransformation.GetTranslationValues( out_pvarX, out_pvarY, out_pvarZ );


Parameter Type Description
out_pvarX Double X translation value
out_pvarY Double Y translation value
out_pvarZ Double Z translation value


VBScript Example

set oCube = ActiveSceneRoot.AddGeometry("Cube","MeshSurface")
Translate oCube , 2.36313544550135, 0.117570382688882, -1.17570382688882E-02, siRelative, siView, siObj, siXYZ
set oTransform = oCube.Kinematics.Global.Transform
oTransform.GetTranslationValues X, Y, Z
Application.LogMessage "Translation values: " & X & "," & Y & "," & Z
