You must write an add-in using the EPDM API.
Do you know some place for see some code for start project like this,
I really want know just how to show a form in front of my save form... already noticed something like that?
I will try to find some api examples for solidworks and test here...
That´s it, i will try the tutorial from first link!!!!!
Thanks a lot!!!
I tried to review the links you shared but they don't show any video (neither of the 2 links work)
My company just got SolidWorks Premium 2017 & PDM Proffesional & I am tasked with setup of the PDM from scratch.
I have been a user of SW & PDM at previous companies, but never been an admin responsible of setting up the Vault from scratch.
The video Bruno posted is exactly what I am trying to achieve:
1. When the user hits save on a solidworks part or assembly it pops up a menu for prefix & adds a part number
2. This file name also becomes the designated Part Number in the data card
The same can be done on parts SolidWorks files dragged into the vault - the take the next available serial number as the part number with a prefix.
My manager wants the following convention
> Any part to start from 150-001,002 etc
> Any sub assembly to start from 600-001,002 etc
> Any master assembly to start from 1000-001,002 etc
So I would change my prefix to also be numeric instead of alphabets
And the final step would be to rename all drawings generated to have the same Part number as its file name
E.g, solid works part or assembly file would also have a drawing with the same file name 150-001.slddrw
If you have any tutorials or api I can use a building blocks, it would be much appreciated.
If you see the video...
At 0:30, when you save a file or save as... a file, a form appears with the save dialog!
Can anyone tell me how can i make this, because, using Dispatch that type of dialog box appears only after i already saved a file into my vault!
What i need is somethig like api for show a dilog box and get this values before really save the file to put in a Form in my data card or tranfor for a dispatch variable....
If anyone know how to make that, or some link with some explanation about this, please tell me!!!
I dont know if i made a good explanation, but if you need more informations.. please tell me....
I tried with that files,
but the form just appears after put the vile in the vault, if i move a new file to my vault, the form appears, like i wand to work, but when i try to save directly from sw, dont appears, even work owith the dispatch working when a create a new file in my vault...
i will keep searchig for a solution... maybe a api executing in my sw save button, for tranfer the data from a propertie to dispatch...
if i find something i will tell guys...
