    Problem with wireframe model display (SW 2015 & 2017)

    Jedrzej Kurkiewicz

      Hello All;


      I have used a macro to apply the same color as part to wireframe (SW 2015 & 2017).

      The macro worked correctly up to a couple of days ago.

      I use below code to change the setting in a document options and right after using the macro the model display is ok, but when I reopen the part it loose "colored" wireframe appearance.


      Macro code (copied from this thread):

      Dim swApp As Object

      Sub main()

      Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks

          Dim swModel As SldWorks.ModelDoc2

          Dim bstatus As Boolean

          Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

          Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc



          bstatus = swModel.Extension.SetUserPreferenceToggle( _

              swUserPreferenceToggle_e.swColorsWireframeHLRShadedSame, _

              swUserPreferenceOption_e.swDetailingNoOptionSpecified, True)


      Set swApp = Application.SldWorks

      End Sub


      When I do the same task manually, it works fine.



      Can someone check if the problem also occurs on Your installation of SolidWorks or maybe anyone has an idea where could lies the problem?
