I have a series of Library Feature Parts that I would like to assign to buttons in the Command Manager under a custom tab. This is because the Design Library itself is so overwhelmed with folder structure, that it doesn't make sense to bury it in there. Also, I intend to convert these into Macro Features in the future, so having the buttons already assigned and visible would be an easy transition in the future as well (once I get more comfortable with Macro Features).
It doesn't seem that the "Record Macro" gives me any useful information, as just opens the library feature part, and does nothing with it.
As of now, by VBA code generates the LFP, but chooses the settings automatically based on last saved. I want the Property Manager to show and allow you to choose the placement plane, configuration, and references.
Option Compare Text
Dim myFeat As Feature
Dim myEnt As Entity
Dim mySelectData As SelectData
Dim selMgr As SelectionMgr
Dim libPart As ModelDoc2
Dim myLibFile As String
Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim Part As ModelDoc2
Dim myPart As PartDoc
Dim longstatus As Long, longwarnings As Long
Dim boolStatus As Boolean
myLibFile = "C:\Users\cbalderson\Desktop\lib\BEAD_20DEG.SLDLFP"
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set Part = swApp.ActiveDoc
boolStatus = Part.Extension.SelectByID2("Front Plane", "PLANE", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing, 0)
PS. I referenced "Inserting a library feature part into a part " for the code I have now.
