Hi Evereybody, and thanks in advance for your help
I apologize for my bad english.
I'm writing an add in for solidworks 2017 and I need to show in a picture box the thumbnail of a document selected in a treeview in a windows form that is runnig in solidworks.
I'm trying to use the next function but null image is been returned.
Public Function GetPreview(ByVal file As String) As System.Drawing.Image
Dim pvf As New wpfPreviewFlowControl.wpfThumbnailCreator
pvf = New wpfPreviewFlowControl.wpfThumbnailCreator()
Dim size As System.Drawing.Size
size.Width = 300 ' SIZE OF PREVIEW
size.Height = 300 ' SIZE OF PREVIEW
pvf.DesiredSize = size
GetPreview = pvf.GetThumbNail(file) 'GetPreview is being returned NULL
Does anyone know why i'm getting a null image? If it isn't the correct way to get the thumbnail, does anyone know how to do it? As i said before, the form is running in solidworks so i don't have problems to open the document and read it.
