    API MacroFeature with Properties manager

    Julien Maulbault


      I would like to do a macrofeature where you can manage parameters by the properties manager..

      I'm trying to do this behavior.

      SolidWorks API macro feature demonstration - YouTube


      So I fact :

      - Insert a macro feature when I click on a button on the toolbar.

      - Create and open properties manager after the macro feature insertion.

      - Close the properties manager then udpate de feature

      - Store property values in the model (3rdpartystorage)

      - Be able to edit the macro feature by the property manger panel.


      I found separate sample for all this things.

      But when I try to mix all to get the same think of the video, I fail.


      The big question is :

      - Is there a sample somewhere with the complete scenario ?


      if not, other questions to try to do it by myself :

      - Is right that a I have to store parameters values in the 3rdPartyStorage ?

      - How to manage the feature suppression, to clean the data (feature properties) store on the model ?

      - When should I store data on the model ? When user backup (save) ? At the end of each property edition ?


      I still dreaming to find the code used in the video to show me the path.


      Thank you.
