    solidworks application visibility problem

    Cetin Ozgur Baltaci

      Hi everyone,

      I have built a stand alone application that works with solidworks and it's api.


      //I open or start solidworks by using this line

      SldWorks swApp;

      swApp = (SldWorks)Activator.CreateInstance(Type.GetTypeFromProgID("SldWorks.Application"));


      //and than


      swApp.Visible =false; // solidworks has to ready to start back side.


      //and solidworks starded invisible.


      //after that


      // I try to open new document that stay in my hard drive and its location for example "c:\temp\part.sldprt" by using this line

      int errors = 0;

      int warnings = 0;

      swApp.OpenDoc6(@"c:\temp\part.sldprt", (int)swDocumentTypes_e.swDocPART, (int)swOpenDocOptions_e.swOpenDocOptions_Silent, "", ref errors, ref warnings);


      after this invisible solidworks turn into visible .


      I want solidworks should stay invisible. How can i do this.?


      Best Regards.
