    How do I prevent pdf from opening when doing a saveas?

    Lyndon Crossman

      Here is my line of code.

      The pdf still opens even with the silent option.

       

         boolstatus = swModelDocExt.SaveAs(PdfFilePath, 0, swSaveAsOptions_e.swSaveAsOptions_Silent, swExportPDFData, lErrors, lWarnings)

       

      Recommendations?

       

      I have discovered the reason.

       

      I did a save as through Solidworks UI and noticed a check box. "View PDF after saving" I deselected this and pdf no longer pops up.

      I guess the API silent option is overridden by the Save as Checkbox.
