    Modify A Global Variable Value (C#)

    Jason Taylor

      I am trying to modify global variables within my C# code.


      Based on these two examples:

      I have come up with the following code, but it doesn't change the global variables. Also, when I go into the equation manager after the code runs it has red Xs by the equations and says "The syntax of this equation is incorrect".


           string Depth = "\"Depth\" = " + param["Part"].Substring(0, param["Part"].IndexOf("x"));

           string flangeWidth = "\"FlangeWidth\" = " + param["Width"];


           swEquationMgr = swModel.GetEquationMgr();

           swEquationMgr.SetEquationAndConfigurationOption(0, Depth, (int)swInConfigurationOpts_e.swAllConfiguration, null);

           swEquationMgr.SetEquationAndConfigurationOption(0, flangeWidth, (int)swInConfigurationOpts_e.swAllConfiguration, null);


      NOTE: The Depth variable correctly evaluates to ("Depth" = 8) & flangeWidth evaluates to ("FlangeWidth" = 3.5).


      Can anyone help me with what I am doing wrong?
