Hey all, I've been trying to create a macro for quite a while now and I can't seem to figure out how to get a Evaluated Value instead of the Value / Text Expression. FYI, I know next to nothing about programming. I've looked up a lot of forums, but I get lost in the codes.
I have a property in custom properties that is linked to a global variable. The global variable is "Process1" which is defined as = IIF ( "Number of Bend" = 0 , 5 , 54 ). I will include an image to clarify.
So far this is what I have for the macro:
Dim swApp As SldWorks.SldWorks
Dim swModel As ModelDoc2
Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set swModel = swApp.ActiveDoc
'Check and Add/Update Color Property
If Right(swModel.GetTitle, 4) = "YARD" Then
swModel.CustomInfo("Color") = Right(swModel.GetTitle, 7)
swModel.CustomInfo("Color") = Right(swModel.GetTitle, 2)
swModel.CustomInfo("G") = swModel.CustomInfo("ProcessID")
The macro is 2 parts.
First part checks the name and modifies a custom property.
Second part is supposed to check if the part has a bend. If yes then G=5-4, if no leave blank.
The first part of the macro works fine up until the 'Process Property section.
When I run the macro it sets the custom property "G" = "Process1@AA00-A0-K0-1LBP-BL-YARD.SLDPRT"
Ultimately I would like to be "G" = 54. So is there a way to make swModel.CustomInfo("ProcessID") as the evaluated value instead of ""Process1@AA00-A0-K0-1LBP-BL-YARD.SLDPRT".
