Using VB.net to pull BOM into a stand-alone API.
We have two DIN rails in the assembly - one the designer used in the model, which is excluded from the BOM, and one which is used in the BOM and has a length of 500mm.
When I pull the BOM into my API, I get 2 entries. Both have QTY = 1. When I view this assembly in PDM though it has one entry, with QTY = 500.
1. How do I flag lines in the BOM where the part is excluded?
2. Where do I get the actual length quantity from?
bomView = aFile.GetComputedBOM(ppoRetLayout.mbsLayoutName, -1, "@", EdmBomFlag.EdmBf_AsBuilt + EdmBomFlag.EdmBf_ShowSelected)
ppoRow = ppoRows(i)
ppoRow.GetVar(ppoColumns(4).mlVariableID, ppoColumns(4).meType, poValue, poComputedValue, pbsConfiguration, pbReadOnly)
sQty = poValue.ToString
