    Activate document (on top)

    Willem Van Opstal

      I created a small script which opens a document of your choice. Check the code below to see how.

      Here's my problem: It is still possible to open a document, even when it's already open. This makes it confusing, so I'd like to have this document on top of the other open files. (is this clear??).

      I would like to add another script which 'activates' the document which is already open.


      How can this be achieved?


      Dim swApp As Object

      Dim Part As Object

      Dim boolstatus As Boolean

      Dim longstatus As Long, longwarnings As Long

      Dim pathMacro As String

      Dim pathModels As String

      Dim pathModel As String


      Private Sub OpenMe_Click()

      Set swApp = _


      Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc

      pathMacro = swApp.GetCurrentMacroPathFolder

      pathModels = pathMacro & "\Models\"


      Select Case Me.ComboBox.value

          Case "Bicycle Rack"

              Set Part = swApp.OpenDoc6(pathModels & "Bicycle Rack\Bicycle Rack.SLDASM", 2, 0, "", longstatus, longwarnings)

      Case etcetera etcetera.....        

      End Select


      End Sub
