Traversing doesn't work when the file is not visible

Hi all,


Here again . I am trying to get the bounding box of a sheet metal part through traversing the feature tree. It works fine when the file is visible but it is not when it is not. Any idea how could I solve it?


This is the code:


swApp.DocumentVisible False, GetswFileType(Filename)

Set swModel = swApp.OpenDoc6(Filename, GetswFileType(Filename), swOpenDocOptions_e.swOpenDocOptions_Silent + swOpenDocOptions_ReadOnly, "", longstatus, longwarnings)


If Not swModel Is Nothing Then

Set swFeatureManager = swModel.FeatureManager


If Not swFeatureManager Is Nothing Then

Set swRootNode = swFeatureManager.GetFeatureTreeRootItem2(swFeatMgrPane_e.swFeatMgrPaneBottom) --> When the file is not visible swRootNode is Nothing.

If Not swRootNode Is Nothing Then

GetSheetMetalBoundingBox = GetSheetMetalBoundingBox_TraverseNode(swRootNode)


GetSheetMetalBoundingBox = "0:0"

End If



Thank yor for your help!
