API Extract Reference Curve File Path

Question asked by Andrew Paino on Dec 14, 2016
Latest reply on Dec 14, 2016 by Deepak Gupta

I am attempting to have a macro look through features in any part, identify all reference curves, and identify the file path that defines that curve.

 

I've got the macro identifying reference curves just fine, the part I do not know how to do is identify the corresponding file path. What's the best way to do that? I've included what I have so far below.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Sub curveCheck()

 

Dim swApp                             As SldWorks.SldWorks

Dim swModel                          As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

Dim swFeat                            As SldWorks.Feature

Dim swSelectionManager      As SldWorks.SelectionMgr

 

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc

Set swSelectionManager = swModel.SelectionManager

 

Do While Not swFeat Is Nothing

    If swFeat.GetTypeName2 = "CurveInFile" Then

        Set swFeat = swSelectionManager.GetSelectedObject6(1, -1)

        'This is the part where I'm lost and would like to fill in the path.

    End If

Set swFeat = swFeat.GetNextFeature

Loop

 

End Sub
