API Configurations

Hi all,

 

I have 2 questions. Is it possible to have all configurations selected in a BOM through api?

I currently have:

 

configuration = swView.ReferencedConfiguration

Set swBomAnn = swView.InsertBomTable4(True, 0, 0, anchorType, bomType, configuration, bomTemplate, False, swNumberingType_Detailed, True)

 

But this of course only enables 1 configuration. I need all.

configurations.JPGA bit like pressing this button.

 

 

Other question:

What I also need, is to extract (get) the used configuration name of an exsisting BOM and when I insert a new BOM (replacing the old one with a different bom-template) use that same configuration.

Because 'configuration = swView.ReferencedConfiguration' is not always the configuration of the BOM that was already in the drawing and then the part list becomes incorrect.

 

 

 

 

The Macro I'm writing replaces the exsisting BOM from Engineering and replaces it with a BOM suitable as a spare part list for customers.
