Return Value

The unit types for which the FormatOptions can be modified.


The Units class stores a FormatOptions object for every valid unit type, but not all of them can be directly modified. Some, like UT_Number and UT_SiteAngle, have fixed definitions. Others have definitions which are automatically derived from other unit types. For example, UT_SheetLength is derived from UT_Length and UT_ForceScale is derived from UT_Force.
