I have assembled code that...
1. Generates Windows username.
2. Sets the UserName as a property.
3. Rebuilds the document (allowing any linked values to automatically update).
Dim swApp As Object
Dim Part As Object
Dim boolstatus As Boolean
Dim longstatus As Long, longwarnings As Long
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Dim swModelDoc As SldWorks.modelDoc2
Set swModelDoc = swApp.ActiveDoc
'get username from windows login
Dim UserName As String
UserName = Environ("USERNAME")
'(i used this to verify code was working)MsgBox UserName
Dim cpm As SldWorks.CustomPropertyManager
Set cpm = swModelDoc.Extension.CustomPropertyManager("")
'delete old "UserName"
'regenerate new value for "UserName"
cpm.Add2 "UserName", swCustomInfoText, UserName
'rebulid drawing, so above-mentioned property will update
Dim modelDoc2 As modelDoc2
Set modelDoc2 = swApp.ActiveDoc
All of the above is working correctly.
What I now want to do is have this code launch every time a drawing is printed (as i want the username to appear on the drawing).
What are my options? I was thinking that maybe when the "print" command is activated it automatically happen? or maybe when a drawing is opened it happens? Not sure how difficult any of this is. Thanks!
