Procedure GetGableAttributes returns the attributes of a gable dormer in the referenced roof.
PROCEDURE GetGableAttributes(
roofObject  :HANDLE;
dormerID  :INTEGER;
VAR useHeight  :BOOLEAN;
VAR heightDepth  :REAL;
VAR bottomWidth  :REAL;
VAR overhang  :REAL;
VAR leftSlope  :REAL;
VAR rightSlope  :REAL);
def vs.GetGableAttributes(roofObject, dormerID):
    return (useHeight, heightDepth, bottomWidth, overhang, leftSlope, rightSlope)


roofObject HANDLE Handle to roof.
dormerID INTEGER Index of dormer element.
useHeight BOOLEAN Returns if height setting was used to created dormer.
heightDepth REAL Returns height or depth value.
bottomWidth REAL Returns bottom width.
overhang REAL Returns overhang width.
leftSlope REAL Returns left roof slope of dormer element.
rightSlope REAL Returns right roof slope of dormer element.


This will fail if the dormerID identifies a dormer of a different style, or the dormerID is not valid.

dormerID: Identifies the dormer for which to retrieve the information.

useHeight: Set to true if the next value is the height of the dormer, if false, next value is the depth (front to back) of the dormer. heightDepthValue: Size of the dormer, either by height or depth; determined by previous parameter.

bottomWidth: Dimension of bottom front edge of the dormer, left to right.

leftSlope: Angle of left dormer roof. rightSlope: Angle of right dormer roof.

overhang: Distance roof projects past dormer walls.
