Is it possible to know if a part is virtual reading the document through document manager API?

I am using GetDocument to get the part file and then GetComponents, so I can then look isVirtual property on the component.


The problem is for the virtual part is returning None so I can go on checking if its virtual


swDocPart = (SwDMDocument19)mDocumenManager.GetDocument(path, nDocType, true, out nRetVal); => RETURNED NONE


                    if (nRetVal != SwDmDocumentOpenError.swDmDocumentOpenErrorNone)


                        // if it can't find the file

                        if (nRetVal == SwDmDocumentOpenError.swDmDocumentOpenErrorFileNotFound)


                            // look if its virtual

                            SwDMConfiguration12 config;

                            SwDMConfigurationMgr configMgr = swDocPart.ConfigurationManager;

                            config = (SwDMConfiguration12)configMgr.GetConfigurationByName(configMgr.GetActiveConfigurationName());

                            object comps = config.GetComponents();

                            Array arrComps = (Array)comps;



                            foreach (SwDMComponent9 swComp in arrComps)


                                bool isVirtual = swComp.IsVirtual;
