Hello SolidWorks experts,
I found a tag in SolidWorks very useful. I have put textual information of parts using tags. However, I don't know how to retrieve them using the api. Anybody can help? Thank you.
Thanks for the link. However, I don't want to get DatumTags or HoleTags. Maybe my question is not clear enough. What I would like to do is to get the part tag via the API. For example, the box in the picture below is tagged as "WorkObject". I would like to get this tag out of SolidWorks using API. I have queried Custom Properties using the API successfully, but for the tags I really have no idea what command in the API can be used to do this. Any suggestion or discussion would be very appreciated. Thanks.
Would it not be this?

Suthida, I have not tried this myself, but perhaps you could try:
2016 SOLIDWORKS API Help - SummaryInfo Property (IModelDoc2)
and try to get the value of the "Keywords"
thank you Steven Barry and Peter Kennedy
I have tried both methods but they are not successful. After several days of the attempt, I guess SolidWorks doesn't offer the command to get the part tags which are intended to use for filtering in the feature manager. I will create my own add-in in order to fill in and retrieve tags.
You can try, firstname.lastname@example.org, sometimes they respond.
