I want to write a code to auto run when i startup a specified add-in ,such as inspection add in . do you how to use sw API event.
Are you using the Addin template from Solidworks? There is a ConnectedToSolidWorks method that gets called after the add-in is connected.
yes, i am using Addin template from solidworks. Now ,i want to write a addin to catch the state of other addin by solidworks events.
I want to write a code to implement when i load the solidworks simulation addin ,solidworks can notify me "it is load" or other action.
can you know how to do it .
I know that the DSldWorksEvents_DocumentLoadNotify2EventHandler Delegate (SolidWorks.Interop.sldworks) can implement the code autorun when I load a document, but I do not know the code can be auto run when i load a addin(such as SOLIDWORKS Simulation or SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation）.
The SOLIDWORKS API does not have any events associated with add-in loading. What you want to do can be done using other tools such as the Microsoft Trace Event library to detect when DLL files are loaded and then compare them to a list of paths of known add-in DLL files, possibly extracted programmatically from information in the registry.
Can this be done? Absolutely.
Should it be done? Probably not.
Why do you want to do this? Perhaps there is a better approach.
Why to do this ?
Because my customer use the sw inspection addin to automatic balloon in the drawing. and they want to prevent the addin start again when the drawing has been ballooned.
I know that to use the DSldWorksEvents_DocumentLoadNotify2EventHandler Delegate (SolidWorks.Interop.sldworks) to check the drawings when the drawing loading.
but if the drawing has been load, i do not how to prevent the customer to start the addin when the drawings has been balloon.
do you have any idea?
or can you give me a example of microsoft trace event , I haven't written like this before
