'Want to delete all ballons.

'Macro scan view for balloon - if found select and delete selected.  (DeleteSelection2)

'Problem: When I use DeleteSelection2, => Note Is then Nothing and code goes to next view.(there is more notes)

'If DeleteSelection2 is comment out - then it will find all the balloons in the view?


'Why is notes goto nothing when I use DeleteSelection2 ? There is more notes in the view....

'(Maby a solution is to make a collection of selection - and the delete - but I would like to know why it jump to next view )


'Delete all baloon in all views

Dim swApp As Object
Dim Drw As Object
Dim View As Object
Dim Note As Object
Dim Bool As Boolean
Dim longstatus As Long

Sub main()

Set swApp = Application.SldWorks
Set Drw = swApp.ActiveDoc

If Not Drw Is Nothing Then

If Drw.GetType = 3 Then 'Activedoc = Drawing?

Set View = Drw.GetFirstView '= drawing sheet
Set View = View.GetNextView '= first real view

While Not View Is Nothing 'loop through views
Debug.Print "Look in view " & View.GetName2

Set Note = View.GetFirstNote

While Not Note Is Nothing 'loop through notes

If Note.IsBomBalloon Then

Dim nnavn As String
Dim booleanstatus As Boolean


Debug.Print " item " & Note.GetName
nnavn = Note.GetName & "@" & View.GetName2 'ID for balloon
Debug.Print " ID " & nnavn


boolstatus = Drw.Extension.SelectByID2(nnavn & "@" & View.GetName2, "NOTE", 0, 0, 0, False, 0, Nothing, 0)
Stop ' If I take out the next line - it will find all balloons ...
longstatus = Drw.Extension.DeleteSelection2(SwConst.swDelete_Absorbed) 'SwConst.swDelete_Children or 0

Set Note = Note.GetNext
