Does the Enterprise PDM add-in for SolidWorks support naming new files from a serial number generator created with API (vb.net)?
I got this working with EPDM templates, but not File > SaveAs functions.
Yes. Search for "Creating Serial Numbers Using Visual Basic" in the EPDM API help.
I have already done the application development. My addin works fine, but not with 'save as' in SolidWorks.
I'm not sure I understand your question then. You can have SolidWorks automatically use a serial number by setting this in the EPDM options within SolidWorks. I don't think it's possible to intercept the Save As process and automically populate the SolidWorks save dialog with your serial number. However, if you want to create your own serial number during a save as, you could create your own Save As button that generates the serial number for your own save dialog.
Uploaded a video to try to explain what I mean:
Sorry, the video is blocked by our internet filter.
As a workaround: In the beginning of your video you right click to create a new part. You can do this in the save as dialog and then overwrite the file that was created.
