What would be the correct way to catch if user closed SolidWorks application.
I use the following code when starting my app.
If SeeIfSWRunning() <> True Then Me.Close()
' see if SolidWorks is running or not
Public Function SeeIfSWRunning() As Boolean
Dim p() As Process
p = Process.GetProcessesByName("SLDWORKS")
If p.Count > 0 Then
MessageBox.Show("SolidWorks is not running on this computer. Please start it prior to use this app.", TPCMessage, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation)
swApp = Nothing
Lets say user accidentally closed application in the middle of design and then clicked button on my app to open the template for instance...
' opens a template
Private Sub btn_OpenTemplate_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btn_OpenTemplate.Click
If SeeIfSWRunning() <> True Then Exit Sub
Part = swApp.NewDocument(Template, 0, 0, 0)
Thats where I`m getting error....
An unhandled exception of type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException
I noticed that there are a few process by SW that starts with SLDWORKS
- this is when SW is open
- this is when SW is closed
Is there a another way to check this?
