I only recently started working with the SolidWorks API. Now I'm trying to change the material and appearance of a few parts in an assembly. I figured the easiest (for me that is) way to do this, is by opening the parts in the background and then changing the things I want to change. But everytime I run the macro, I still see parts opening.
I narrowed what I have down to this:
Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim Part As SldWorks.ModelDoc2
Dim longstatus As Long, longwarning As Long
Dim boolstatus As Boolean
Dim macrfolder As String
Dim Materiaal As String
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
macrofolder = swApp.GetCurrentMacroPathFolder() & "\"
Materiaal = "Pure Gold"
swApp.DocumentVisible False, swDocPART
Set Part = swApp.OpenDoc6("schaar_onder.SLDPRT", swDocPART, swOpenDocOptions_Silent, "", longstatus, longwarning)
Set Part = swApp.ActivateDoc2("schaar_onder", True, longstatus)
Part.SetMaterialPropertyName2 "Default", "C:/Program Files/SOLIDWORKS Corp/SOLIDWORKS/lang/english/sldmaterials/SOLIDWORKS Materials.sldmat", Materiaal
swApp.DocumentVisible True, swDocPART
