Get Custom Property of Selected Part

I'm trying to get a specific custom property of a selected part.  I found this discussion that claims to provide the answer, but when I try to use that in my code, I get errors: Use API to obtain custom properties of currently selected part in an assembly.


Here's the code I'm currently using:


Sub OpenSource()     Dim lSuccess As Long, swModel As ModelDoc2, SourceURL As String         Dim selMgr As SelectionMgr, Path As String         With Application.SldWorks.ActiveDoc         With .SelectionManager             If .GetSelectedObjectCount2(-1) <> 0 And _                .GetSelectedObjectType3(1, -1) <> 0 Then                 SourceURL = .GetSelectedObjectsComponent4(1, -1).GetModelDoc2.Extension.CustomPropertyManager("").Get("Source URL")             End If         End With     End With End Sub


This produces the following error on line 10:




Also, it would be very beneficial to know if the properties of a part set to lightweight are visible to the API.


Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.  I'm using SolidWork Professional 2015 on a Windows 7 machine.
